Here’s what we’re reading this month!

My Superhero Grandpa

This picture book is awesome for helping a child deal with the loss of their Grandpa.

My kids lost one of their grandparents two years ago and this book would have been incredibly helpful


In the story, Grandpa becomes a superhero in heaven who is watching over the kids from above. What kid wouldn’t want to have their own superhero?!

This is a older picture of my kids with their super hero Grandpa!

Stories About Me

You can use your child’s name in every story. This book has a spot on the cover where you can add your child’s photo, too. There are three sections: Fun and Learning, Just for Fun, and Safety. I really liked the first section. Being a math teacher, I love fun stories that incorporate math concepts! My daughter really enjoyed one of the measurement stories about a cat named Tiger (because one of our cats is also named Tiger!).
As you read the stories, there are some good active things you can do along with the story. My kids really got into measuring EVERYTHING after we read this book. This is a great choice for early elementary students and is great for summer reading!

  1. Such cute books. We have My Superhero Grandpa already. Stories About Me seems like a great book for my almost 4 year old to start really interacting with books. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  2. I would absolutely love to win this for my granddaughter. I believe books and reading to your children is very important for bonding.
