February - March Book List

Some books we read in February and we keep reading in March. (In bold, the girls favs). These are for children between 4-6 (I really don't know, but those are my children ages, ha ha ha, so I guess anyone their age will enjoy them too!).
Mirror Mirror: A Book of Reversible VerseThis is for 6 and older, maybe even 9. My daughters listened to the rhymes, but older children may get more of the fascinating reversible rhymes. I find it fascinating, and the author even writes at the end about how she started writing this type of poems, and encourages you to try your own.
