Books We Love: March Reading List

I’m pretty sure I took half the books we read back to the library without adding them to my list, but here we are. I kind of feel like I need to make a list of just books my daughter reads on her own – that girl loves to read! To see more books we love, visit our page of weekly posts sharing our favorites.

Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge by Mem Fox This is a cute story about how a little boy helps someone remember things about their life. I love how it shows that being little doesn’t need to stop you – you can still make someone’s day better.

Bear Grylls Adventures: The Earthquake Challenge We love this series and are starting on the last in the series that we haven’t read yet. They are absolute favorites in our house.

Leif the Lucky by Ingrid & Edgar Parin D’Aulaire This is part of our reading list for Beautiful Feet Books. {Check back soon for my full review of their American History Primer and Character Training curriculum}

The Clown of God by Tomie DePaola I love how this story shows that giving and using the gift God gave you as an individual really counts.

Addy Learns A Lesson by Connie Porter We are reading the entire American Girls series about Addy.

A Walk in New York by Salvatore Rubbino

Kitty Kat, Kitty Kat, where have you been? I’ve been to New York and guess what I’ve seen… by Russell Punter & Dan Taylor This series of books is adorable and fun. We love to look at the map on the front and back inside covers to see the tracks the kitty leaves as he walks through the city visiting tons of landmark buildings.

New York, Baby by Ward Jenkins

Tuttle’s Red Barn: The Story of America’s Oldest Family Farm by Richard Michelson I love this book for so many reasons. I love how it goes through from the first generation to own the farm through the most recent – all while showing how farming the land changed from one generation to the next. This one is on my “add to my bookshelf” list.

Kitty Kat, Kitty Kat, where have you been? I’ve been to Washington D. C., and guess what I’ve seen… by Russell Punter & Dan Taylor

She Persisted 13 American Women Who Changed the World by Chelsea Clinton Have we talked enough yet on how I want strong individuals from history being put in front of my children all the time? I love this story and how these women succeeded because they didn’t give up.If you are looking for a book full of influential women in history - this is a great one.

No Truth Without Ruth – The Life of Ruth Bader Ginsburg by Kathleen Krull

The First Step: How One Girl Put Segregation on Trial by Susan E. Goodman

The Battle of Gettysburg: Would You Lead the Fight? by Elaine Landau This is another series I would like to own all of. You read a page or two and then it asks you what you would do if you were the one making the decision. It gives you options, you decide what you would do, then turn the page to find out what that person decided to do. It really helps the history to sink in and be remembered.

New York’s Bravest by Mary Pope Osborne

The Gettysburg Address by Abraham Lincoln

Who Was Milton Hershey? by James Buckley Jr. Do you love the Who Was books? This one was fun to read. I learned a lot and had no clue what a generous person Milton Hershey was.

Finding Providence: The Story of Roger Williams by Avi I loved this books! It was fun reading about how Providence got it’s name and the special meaning behind it. We ended up reading this as part of a curriculum we were reviewing and I absolutely loved the book list for it.

Lighthouse Family: The Whale by Cynthia Rylant The telling of this story made me feel like I was right there at the beach, feeling the warmth of the sun and the sand on my toes.

September Roses by Jeanette Winter This is a great tribute to September 11th and a story I had no clue about until reading this book.


These are the books I remembered to add to our list, maybe in April I’ll do better, ha! Have you read any of the books on the list? Do you have a fantastic book you read this month that I should read to the kids?
