Reading Journey October 2020

Our 2020 Reading Journey – Month 10

As I mentioned in my post from earlier this year, I decided that this year I would record all the books my 5 year old and I read together. I’ve been snapping a quick picture of all the books from each day, and collecting them in an album over on my blog’s Facebook page – and now also on Instagram! Here’s our pile of books from our tenth month:
