Books of the Month: January 2013

Books are an important part of our family.  Aaron and I love to read, and we've read to Sam from the day he popped out into this world.  Actually, come to think of it, we even read to him before he was born!  Here are our favorite books that we discovered this month.

Freight Train by Donald Crews
Sam loves the colors and simplicity of this book.  We borrowed it from the library and ended up buying a board book for him because the day we took it back to the library he cried.  I think he also loves the fact that Daddy does some pretty impressive sound effects!

Sheep in a Jeep by Nancy Shaw
This was another one that we purchased after finding it at the library.  The illustrations are hysterical, and the story is simple and quick.

We Are In A Book by Mo Willems
If you haven't read Elephant and Piggie yet you are really missing out.  This one is one of our favorites.

The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan
Not nearly as good as the original Percy Jackson series, but still an enjoyable easy read.

The Ranger's Apprentice Series by John Flanagan
We actually discovered these books last fall, but since Aaron just finished the series this month it seemed appropriate.

Captivating / Wild At Heart by John & Stasi Eldredge
Aaron and I read these books together.  We both were extremely touched and convicted by the insight the authors offer.  

What did you read this month that blew your hair back?
