Purpose-driven Kid’s Book Reviews
Welcome to Dad Read It First! where I pre-read the books that eventually land in the hands of my 3 kids in an effort to re-enforce morals, ethics, and cultural standards as they come across them.
I’m a parental “sherpa”, I guess- helping my kids to react for themselves during the Joplin Tornado in
Book Report Spot Check
There’s also a section in each/most/some of my reviews (it’s a nascent idea, forgive the early under-commitment) that I call, “Did your kiddos really read it…?”.
Still working with the content and length to find the right blend, but if you want a quick rundown the plot, new vocab words, or maybe some starter questions to get your kiddos talking about their book, this will be a good place to start. Plus… if I do it right, you won’t have to read your kid’s book report selection (the night before it’s due) to know that they nailed it!
I love food!… Food and “book chat” pair so well, I think! From time to time, I might share a favorite recipe that fits the book on display! Think Robin Sloan’s, Sourdough…coupled with the best buttermilk sourdough pancake recipe this side of the 1930’s.
Again, Welcome and Enjoy!
