Fun Friday Find: Children’s books


My family is hitting the Summer Reading lists hard these next few months, and thanks to the amazing online community that is Facebook – we have some added favorites!

A couple of weeks ago, I reached out to parents on Facebook on their favorite children’s books to read to Lyon’s class as Mystery Reader.  I was so overwhelmed with the responses, I decided to post a few of those favorites here!  If you have children ages 3-7, they will love these.  We’ve already added 50% to our library and can’t wait to dig through the rest.

Enjoy Reading!
