Oh boy, is it EVER Summer in our home. We went swimming SIX out of seven days this week. Yep… I’m exhausted! Truth be told – we aren’t reading nearly as much as I’d like this July. It has been a unique month filled with LOTS of kids at our home, in our van, and in our lives – and busy, busy days with little to no room for reading aloud. (I can’t believe I’m saying that!) But, it is true. It is different, but still meaningful and blessed – in different ways.
I’m trying to have grace with myself but BOY am I missing our regular routine. I guess I’m hoping the ‘burn them out in July, back to business in August’ theory will actually work. Um, maybe.
So, yeah, please do not look at this post and think we are actually READING all the books photographed right now.
No, no, no… today it took us about 4 tries to get the The Butterfly by Patricia Polacco because we had friends knocking at the door and another friend calling repeatedly on the phone. (chuckle… yep, it’s Summer…)
There are many wonderful titles for Europe in Jamie’s book, Give your Child the World. The ones below are titles I was easily able to get from our local library. (So, hopefully you can too!?)
So, this post serves as a reference and maybe even an inspiration for finding GREAT living books set in European countries for further reading, learning, and exploration.
