We are kicking off our 2009 Summer reading with a great start. The girls are really excited and love going to the bookstore. Today we went to Barnes and Noble and the girls picked out the following books. I don't officially have the list of all that they will read for this school year complete yet, but to start off this is what they will be reading. The girls were really excited about the books they read all the way home.

-Sarah, Plain and Tall by Patricia Maclachlan
-Number the Stars by Lois Lowry

-One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish by Dr. Seuss

*Madison & Mikayla also got Brain Quest Workbooks for 3rd & 1st grades for summer review.*
