Reading with Riggs :: Summer Reading Program Week 5

The library took the week of the 4th off from the summer reading program, so we're on week five this week. It's still going really well, and like I mentioned before, my favorite part I think is watching Riggs make seemingly flash decisions about which books he likes and which he doesn't like.

This week we went to the library via bicycle and buggy. It was really nice and I think we'll be making more trips this way in the future. The weather was nice when we left the house, then it rained half-way to Palmer, then was nice, then was raining again (lightly) when we got out of the library. Such Alaskan weather...

 one of our new favorites: On the Night You Were Born
and of course he found the Curious George books.
He also had about five minutes of fun from sitting down on that step
and then standing up, and then sitting down, and kicking his feet: 

 at home we've been reading a few of our own books, like Go, Dog. Go!
there's also been a lot of reading of the pocket dictionary
Riggs new favorite book to carry around and 'read':

Week five - 10 books
1. Go, Dog. Go! by P.D. Eastman
2. Country Babies Wear Plaid by Michelle Sinclair Colman

  1. We're doing the summer reading program with Evie too. It's fun to see what books are other kids favorites. She likes On the Night You Were Born too! But I think her all time favorite book is Tails. Riggs would probably like it too. It has a lot of touch and feel spots and tabs to pull that make the animals do fun things.

  2. @Andrea - we'll have to see if they have 'Tails' - I'm sure Riggs would love it!!
