What My Children Are Reading Meme, August 6th edition

Welcome to this week's edition of "What My Children Are Reading." This week we've been on a "staycation" and have spent some quality time at the library. In fact, we'll probably go again today since it's a rainy day.

Here is what my daughter picked out at the library this week:

The Shell Book by Barbara Hirsch Lember

While the text is a bit too advanced for my two-year-old, she's captivated by the gorgeous photographs of different seashells that can be found in North America.

I think this would make a great book for children who want to learn some fascinating facts about shells and who love the beach.

Elephants: A Book for Children by Steve Bloom

This book immediately caught my little one's eye, and we've been flipping through it all week. Again, while the text is a bit too advanced for a two-year-old, the photographs of elephants in a variety of different locations and doing a number of different things from rolling in mud to getting a bath are absolutely stunning.

In fact, this may be one that we add to our permanent library at home.

What have your kids been reading this week? Leave your link with Mr. Linky or a comment.


  1. These books look gorgeous. My daughter who is 33 months is not a big fan of photo books at the moment unless they have a good story with them. Hopefully her tastes will expand over time :)

  2. Both of these look really cute!
