We read a lot of books here in our home. Lauren is reading books daily to improve her reading level. I also read to the girls as much as I can get them to sit still for it. This really helps my beginning and young readers to absorb new words as well as grammar.
Reading is the most important thing you can teach your children!
Recently we read a book called Mr. Bo Finds a New Home and a New Name. It’s a book about a cat (yes you all know how I feel about cats, but this books is very cute) that is up for adoption. The book is written entirely from the cat’s point of view.
It truly helped my girls understand the feelings of abandonment, rejection, loneliness and the need for a family not only for animals but children as well. In fact while reading the book they asked questions about adoption. It really was an opportunity for a great dialogue with them on the subject. They have a few friends that are adopted. Also, our pets are adopted as well!
It made a great read aloud book and I would say it would be a good book for reading alone for 3rd graders. The book, written by Timothy Battle, is actually based on a true story! Mr. Bo is his cat! I think that is pretty awesome!
You can buy Mr. Bo Finds a New Home and a New Name on Amazon.
One Not So Average Mama reader will win their very own copy of Mr. Bo Finds a New Home and a New Name! I’m pretty positive that the book is autographed too!
