RGRC Book #1

Hi Everyone,

After several delays, due to website issues and health issues, I finally started the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge on Book Lover’s Day. I have been wanting to do this challenge for numerous years, but I kept procrastinating over the last few months due to the first book. 1984 by George Orwell. In school, I had to read George Orwell 4 years in a row, 3 Animal Farm projects and 2 1984 projects. It had seemed I never would escape the clutches of George Orwell’s writings, so I vowed, never again.

And what just happens to be the first book of the challenge? Yep, I had to accept it, if I ever wanted to get to the fun reads, I was going to have to read Orwell, again. In this day and age, where hate seems to be overflowing and encompassing the world, it was hard to “escape” into this book. It is a frighteningly realistic hyperbole on what society could become.

Anywho, it is a classic and one that I am grateful to check off the list! Up next, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain. This was one of my favorites growing up, so it will be nice to revisit it.

Enjoy!

Children’s Books

My Sister’s Books offers a wide range of children’s books. They have the classic fairy tale books, pop-up books and board books. Young children will adore the bright and colorful pictures, while parents can reminisce about their childhood. For those who are beginning to read, there is a wide selection of beginner’s books arranged by reading levels. These range from simple, short sentences all the way to longer, multiple sentences on a page. Each level helps build a child’s vocabulary along with helping them learn how to read.
There are local children’s authors featured as well. These include stories about the sea turtles, to learning about the water cycle and the value of rain. Another option for an older child, is the selection of big brother/big sister books. These books are dedicated to helping a child get used to the idea of a new baby, while providing them an outlet to express their true feelings. These books are cute and will have parents laughing, too!
Lastly, there are school subject activity books for parents looking to help a child transition from one grade to the next. These books are vital for young children during long breaks, such as summertime. They have fun activities that help reinforce current curriculum, while slowly introducing topics that will be covered in the following year. These books range from Pre K-K to 6th grade-7th grade.
