Did you know that March is National Reading Month? What better time to start a new monthly series here on Enchanted Homeschooling Mom to help encourage and inspire everyone to carve out time every day to read a great book. Most people kick off this national event by celebrating beloved author and illustrator Dr. Seuss. Reading is a necessary skill for everyone, but for kids, if you can inspire them to read on their own with fun storybooks then it makes it easier for them to develop not only their own skills, but also find and foster a great love of reading on their own.
I like to say that if my children find and bolster their own love of reading then the learning will not be a chore and will only be that much easier for them to reinforce their reading skills on their own.
With that in mind, here are some of the top non-holiday books to add to your reading lists this March:

If you like fun kid’s storybook activities, then why not check out the Poppins Book Nook? This fun kids book club focuses on one theme each month and each participating Co-Host chooses one storybook of their own choosing and creates a fun activity, craft, lessons, or anything else. The best part is that each participant is not given a certain format or activity so they all vary their emphasis and age range. The storybook fun is endless and the ideas are always fun for kids. You can follow along with the Poppins Book Nook on Facebook and Pinterest.
Make sure to also follow along with my Reading Activities for Kids for a book load of storybook activities to do with your children or students:
