My daughters Ola and Lore are the perfect examples of kids brought up in the same environment but are totally different from each other. They have different tastes in food, they learn differently ad they read a different genre of books – they are nothing like each other in most things… and this shocks me!
Liking different genre of books means they don’t read each other’s books – except for comics. And since John and I want our kids to enjoy reading; we don’t force them to share books, we just buy what they would enjoy individually. This is an expensive way to get children to read books but it matters not to us. We rather spend money on books than plastic toys! Books are for life, plastic toys end up in recycling bins.
This post is to share with you some of the books we have read in the last week or two.
Books we have read this month.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Do-It-Yourself Book An easy read for kids who do not like to read proper books. This book will help you draw your own Wimpy-Kid-style cartoons and write your own Wimpy Kid journal, just like Greg.
Cool! Ola enjoyed this book so much. The book made her cry and laugh. She was very eager to read it to me. An inspiring story of a boy in a coma called Robbie – the victim of a car accident. Locked inside his own head, able to hear but not move or speak, Robbie tries to keep himself from falling deeper into unconsciousness.
Utterly Me This book revisits Clarice’s family, and introduces Ruby Redfort. Ruby is always going on exciting adventures, but all Clarice gets to do is go to the local shop on her own. But when Clarice and her best friend, Betty Moody, decide to do their school project on the Ruby Redfort books, they suddenly start finding mysteries everywhere. Why are all the coats on the wrong hooks at school, and where has Granddad disappeared to?
Toro! Toro! I read this story to my daughters. I enjoyed it myself. Toro! Toro! is the story of a young boy growing up in Spain, on a farm raising bulls for the bull ring. Antonito rears a little black calf and they become firm friends, but he doesn’t know the fate of the black bulls – the corrida and death
The Flat Stanley Collection Lore enjoyed this book so much, she finished it in a day. Ola found Stanley Lambchop weird so she was not too keen on the story! Stanley Lambchop is an ordinary boy with a strange problem. One night, a massive pinboard falls on top of him leaving him completely flat. Amazing things can happen when you’re flat!
The Wimpy Kid Movie Diary: Movie Diary Another book that was finished in an hour. This book goes behind the scenes of each of the three Wimpy Kid movies to tell the story of Greg Heffley from the funniest cartoon character ever, to a real live person on the big screen.
