Those Kinds of Readers: Our Kids’ Favorites 2018

For this installation of our book lists, I’m going to be very short-winded and let my kids’ booklists speak for themselves. I’ll share what I shared on Facebook/Instagram but very little else.

I usually take a photo of our kids after each school year with the school-year books that they’ve completed that year.  However, this year, owing to our move and our upcoming international move, I had packed away about half of Million and Creedence’s books from this past school year.  Photo op fail.  So we decided to do something I had found on Instagram: take a photo of each of the kids with the books they’re currently loving.  Million had his photo first, and thus he had the smallest amount of books.  With each successive sibling photo, he would slap his forehead and say “Oh! I forgot that one too!”

So here are the kids in all of their glory with their books. I tried to list the books in a generally clockwise fashion.  Many of the younger kids’ books can be found on our fiction picture book list with a more thorough description.
