[Summer Reading Challenge] Link Up #3

Thursday, July 30, 2015

As I've mentioned before, when StephanieCourtney, and I announced our summer reading challenge, I was really excited to start reading more with Mason. We've checked in for the first time to share our first three summer reading books and a second time to share three more, and now I'm back again today sharing what else we've been reading. This time we incorporated Mason's birthday in with the fun and we added a few extra books to the mix!

I've seen people commenting about this book for a while now and was excited when I found it at the library and thought it would be the perfect book for the "alphabet theme". It ended up being just as cute as I thought it would be and I love how they incorporate all the different jobs the peas have into the letters of the alphabet.

In order to incorporate the alphabet into play, Mason's new alphabet puzzle came in handy!


PS something extra fun... when I was looking for the image for this book, I actually discovered that LMNO Peas is actually just one in a series! I'm definitely going to have to check out the others at the library now -- Little Green Peas: A Big Book of Colors and 1-2-3 Peas!

(colors)

I'm sure I've already sang this book's praises on the blog before, but we seriously love this book so it was the natural choice for the "color theme". And if you already have this book and love it as much as we do, there's also a sequel coming out super soon (August 18th!) -- The Day the Crayons Came Home -- I have it saved in my Amazon cart right now!

(A Book You Read as a Child)

I loved this book as a child and was so happy when I found out that they had a board book version of it! I'm pretty sure I actually bought this book when I still worked at Barnes and Noble and way before Mason was even a thought in Seth and my mind, just because I loved it so much. And as a fun little bonus for Mason, we read the book and then had spaghetti and meatballs for dinner :)

In addition to our three books from our reading list, we also added three more to help celebrate Mason's birthday....






And, as it turns out, if you give a Mason a pancake (or seven), he is pretty happy :)

  3. We haven't made a library run in a few weeks, and it's on our to-do list today. Totally added L,M,N,O Peas! And, I thought we had/read all of the If You Give a ____ a ____ books, but I haven't even heard of If You Give a Pig a Party! We'll be hunting that book down, too.

    Marcus has been REALLY into Dr. Seuss' Wacky Wednesday. I think he likes it because it takes longer to read than most books. HA!

  8. Love these books! We have really been into the alphabet stuff lately too. I might have to get Mac that puzzle (and pray that he can sit still long enough to play with it).
