What We Are Reading November 10

The Bailey City Monsters Vampire Baby - The Hauntly Manor Inn has a new guest, a baby. But this is no ordinary baby, this baby has sharp eye teeth, black hair, pale skin and is sensitive to sunlight.  Ben, Annie, and Jane are suspicious of the baby and believe she may be a vampire.

Alexis loves vampires, zombies, and monsters, so we picked this for our read aloud. The Bailey City Kids series encounters lots of ghoulish characters. This series could easily become a favorite in our house.

Pigs In The Mud In The Middle Of The Rud - A family is traveling along a muddy road in a Model T Ford only to be stopped by some pigs playing in the middle of the mud in the rud. Someone's gotta shoo but who? One by one, each family member volunteers to shoo as more animals join the pigs in the mud in the rud but the animals won't budge. This book is full of silly rhymes and Alexis enjoyed reading it aloud.

Sitti's Secrets - When Mona travels from the USA to Palestine to visit her grandmother, she has to rely on her father to translate. Soon Mona and her Sitti (grandmother) develop their own language and no longer need father's help. Mona learns Sitti's customs and daily routines and forms a strong bond with her Palestinian family despite a language barrier. When Mona returns home, she writes a letter to the President of the United States with a message of peace.

Linking Up to What My Child Is Reading and Read Aloud Thursday.


  1. These are three new-to-me titles. The last one sounds like a great addition to a study of Palestine!

    Thanks for linking up!

  2. Interesting book selection! I wonder where exactly the girl went in the last story?
