Letter M Week (Work in Progress)

Very bummed out that Confessions of a Home Schooler's web site wouldn't allow me to download a few of her awesome M&M related materials, as those are by far Natalie's favorite treat (with Oreos a close second).  

As I've said before, I do NOT take out all of the books  listed each week.  This is a list generated from what we have already read or have on our to-read list.  I like to have lots of choices in case you you strike out while looking for books.
