Book Suggestions For Adults And Kids

I’ve been feeling restless with what I’ve been reading lately. It could just be my mood, but whatever it is, nothing is really hitting the spot.

Before I got into this book dry spell, the hummingbird and I read these books. I came across the book Dear Hot Dog and we absolutely fell in love with it. That sparked an interest in poetry for both of us and I’ve been searching out more books.

Honestly, I don’t understand a damn thing about poetry but I think I may be starting to get the gist. I read a few poems by Robert Frost and came close to having a wordgasm. But to be fair, I’m a lover of words and gasms so I have them often.

the-invention-of-wings

The Invention Of Wings – I LOVED the movie The Secret Life Of Bees and was going to read the book, but decided on The Invention Of Wings. In 1803, on Sarah’s eleventh birthday, she’s given ownership of 10 year-old slave, Handful “Hetty”, which Sarah is against.

This book follows the ups and downs of their lives for many years. It is so good.

robert-frost

Robert Frost: Selected Poems – It’s a book. About poems. I couldn’t find the exact book I have.

suburban-haiku

Suburban Haiku: Poetic Dispatches from Behind the Picket Fence – I really love this book and if you don’t have it yet, pick up a copy.

Secret-Life-Violet-Grant-677x1024

The Secret Life Of Violet Grant – I really needed this fun read. In 1964, Vivian receives a parcel from an aunt she didn’t know about. She starts digging further into this mysterious aunt’s life and sees they have more in common than she expected.

Dear Hot Dog – This is such an adorable book that is worth buying because of the many reads you’ll get out of it. It has poems about pants, toes, socks, etc. So cute. Ages 3-6.

I Haiku You – Wonderful book that has helped us with writing exercises. My 6 year-old needs my help, of course, coming up with haikus and we’ve been having fun. Ages 4-8.

Book Speak!: Poems About Books – This is a great book with poems about different parts of books. Very fun reading for the family. Ages 4-7.

    I am loving reading again right now. I lost the time somehow when the kids were little, but I’m restocking my book shelves with new ones (from the library and thrift store) and making time.
