Reading List

Below is a very incomplete and haphazardly assembled list of books we read, mostly over our kindergarten year, but a few in the year before that.  Most of what’s listed are story books  or novels, though I’ve included a few of the books we used for science and math as well.  Thank you for being patient while I get the authors listed!
