Happy New Year!
Can you believe it is 2019 already? To welcome the new year I am going to share with you my reading list for 2019, and I encourage you to make one too. This can also be a fun activity to do with the kids.
Encourage them to look for books that interest them, and write them down. These can be books that they can read themselves right now, or books that they will be able to read later in the year, or books they would like to hear you read to them or listen to as audiobooks.
I know when I was little, I loved to look at our bookshelves, and at the Sonlight catalogue and just right this extensive list of titles I wanted to read (more than I could possibly ever read in one year ) and it was a lot of fun!
I have been making to – read lists for years. This year is no different. I will try to keep the list fairly short, and I will add to it during the year as I discover more great books. So, here is this years reading list:
- Inside Out and Back Again by Thannha Lai

Well, there is my current reading list for 2019. It is subject to change of course, and will probably grow substantially.
I would love to hear from you which books you or your kids are excited to read this year!
