Perhaps the reason that you haven’t commented on last week’s edition is that you aren’t sure what to read at this point. With that possibility in mind, I have a few suggestions to offer during this week’s “Who are YOU reading?” that should be good for the whole family.
A.A. Milne – Though famous for being the genius behind the ongoing wonder that is Winnie ther Pooh, this man wrote several books, both before and after the Hundred Acre Woods, that could be suitable for most of your family. His poetry for young children is so fun to read aloud that you won’t remember you’re supposed to be an adult! Winnie ther Pooh is also always a great choice! (and yes…the ‘r’ is there on purpose!)
Dr. Seuss – need I say more?
Jack Prelutsky – his series of poetry books will have the entire family laughing so hard that a knee slap might be in order! Even infants enjoy listening to the great rhythm of the words, while the whimsy and just plain odd subject matters can make even Grandma giggle.
Ann M. Montgomery – The Babysitter’s Club and the Babysitter’s Little Sister series’ are great for both boys and girls. I have read these books aloud to a fourth grade class and had all of my students hanging on each word.
Caroline Keene – Nancy Drew, a classic series with good clean sleuthing fun for us all!
Elizabeth S. Tyree – I will not go so far as to give myself a glowing review, but I will ask that, if you are interested in fantasy fiction that is cleanly written and whimsically portrayed, that you go to amazon.com and find Dragon on My Neck by Elizabeth S. Tyree. There are already two reviews there for you to see.
Though usually credited to several authors, books like encyclopedias are great for fun and learning. I absolutely love to look through my Encyclopedia of Mythological Creatures and my Greek Mythologies books when I get a little bored.
If you are looking for a good theological, straight from the scriptures study/discussion you should check out Dr. Wilson Jay Tyree on amazon.com. You can also find both of us on facebook at www.facebook.com/TyreeTomes
Remember, engaging your brain with something like silly rhymes or an interesting mystery novel…or even a quick peek through the non-fiction section…can help keep your mind active, and an active mind remembers things better, and continues to move more quickly as it ages!
As always, please feel free to leave some comments! I enjoy hearing from my readers. Until the next time, Have a Blessed Day!
