Best Books - Week 25

Best Books

Best Books is my series of posts that highlights books we find during our book challenge!
These are our finds from week 25.

(Note:  We try to read a minimum of 28 books a week.  The books we list here are our favorites that we found in each week, not necessarily our favorites overall.  Some weeks we find some fantastic books, other weeks we read a lot of fluff.)

Xander's Favorite:

Farm Patterns by Nathan Olson

I love this series of pattern books!  This particular book was about patterns found on farms.  I have been trying to get him to recognize patterns, so it was perfect!  It had some great pictures.  Xander loved pointing to the things he recognized in the pictures like fences, tractors, and animals.
Mommy's Favorites:

A Day at Greenhill Farm by Sue Nicholson

Must be a farm themed week!  Xander and I both enjoyed this reader.  It had great pictures of animals and clear words in a very appealing layout.  I like that on many of the pages, they had little side boxes with pictures of the words.  For example, the goose and her goslings, has two little side boxes with pictures for "bill" and "wings."

 Book Store:
I added an Amazon Store to the blog.  In it I included a shop for our favorite books and will be adding the books from the Best Books posts to it.  I hope having them in one place will make it easier when looking for book suggestions.
