July's Books

I did a REALLY bad job of keeping track of Emma's books this month. I had 2 big projects, 2 midterms, and 2 finals this month, so that took up a lot of my attention.

Read to/With Emma
We started a new series, Miranda and Starlight by Janet Muirhead Hill. We got the 5 book series for a steal when a store selling local made items was going out of business (the owners were retiring). So far, it's a really good, realistic story about a girl who lives with her grandparents (her mother is alive but not a very responsible individual), loves horses, and has a lot of struggles to deal with. Also, written by a Montanan, taking place in Montana. We like it.

There are so many more books that we have read together, or that Emma has read on her own, but I just couldn't keep up with them or her. I also did a bad job taking pictures this month, so no pictures. Sorry!

The Miranda books sound interesting. I love Imogene's Antlers. Could do many different take offs from that story.
