Personal- I got into the Divergent series after I read 50 Shades of Grey. (It was weird going from downloading Erotica to Childrens Fiction)

Daycare- PSH!! Not right now!

Other- Do Better Homes and Gardens and Family Circle Magazines count?

Eta: I thought "Daycare:" meant what books were we personally reading pertaining to daycare!

For the kiddos, we switch between books pretty often. Their current favorites though are Brown Bear Brown Bear and a fairy tale collection book that we have thats a little more geared toward smaller children (as in, the wolf doesn't eat little red riding hoods grandmother, Jack doesnt kill the giant)

Personally ~.... I am reading 2 different books.

Stephen King's Mile 81 (Great short story so far) and

"Slouching Towards Adulthood" by Sally Koslow (VERY interesting and comical book about kids/young adults not being as mature or as "adult" as previous generations etc...

Daycare ~ I leave only certain books out and available to the kids in the summer so nothing new or interesting.

Personal - The Bible. A chapter a day from Proverbs is really my focus this summer and I am loving it.

Daycare - I keep out board books lately because the hardcover books were not doing so well. They have about 20 books out in the circle time area, 15 in the book nook area, 30 under the fish tank that they read before naptime, and about 12 near the tables that they read while waiting for their friends to finish putting on their shoes. THEY read the board books, for the most part unless I am specifically asked. I read them paperback books during pick up time and we just rotate through those. Their favorite lately is The Bear Wants More. I read them themed books during Circle Time so this week one of the books is Teddy Bear Picnic.

Other - Breastfeeding books right now. I am finishing up all of my coursework for the 2013-2014 year (30+ hours) that is required for me to be licensed before baby gets here. HURRY HURRY HURRY!!!

Personal- I just finished Gillian Flynn's books (read them back to back to back, couldn't put them down!) ... now I'm searching for a new read that is available to download from our library. Everything I want is out though, so I'm on about 5 waiting lists, haha.

Daycare- It's dinosaur week (#2) so we are reading some of the kids' favorites - "How Does a Dinosaur Say I Love You", "Berenstein's Bears and the Great Dig", "Dinosaurs?!?" (they love this last one because of the funny chickens telling the story).

Other- ACD monthly magazines, haha.
