Summer Reading for Mom

Summer is here!  Well, at least the weather feels like it, and most folks are getting ready to take a break or at last change pace for the next couple of months.

That means that you, mom, might have a little extra time on your hands, or at least a different type of time.  Fewer formal school lessons, less time in the car taking your kids to and from co-ops and such.  More time enjoying the outdoors and watching your children have fun playing in the sun!  Perhaps you will even have a vacation in there somewhere!

I, to take advantage of this change of pace by making time to READ!

If you are anything like me, you do plenty of reading in the school year.  I read tons and tons of picture books, living books, children's chapter books, text books, teacher's guides, etc.  What I don't always get around to is reading books for me!

It is so important that we, as moms, are also nourishing our souls with good and beautiful writing, and continuing to pursue our own education.

So, what are you going to read this summer?

Can we brainstorm together?  Here are some ideas that I have, and you leave a comment sharing your ideas with me!

  1. I love this list of books, Amy! We take summers off, partly so I can catch up on my reading list and inspire myself for the next school year.

    1. That sounds like a great way to use the summer!
