To go with Expedition Earth for Africa:The Village of Round and Square Houses - This was an interesting story about a villages beliefs and how and why their people are housed the way that they are. It also led to a discussion about our beliefs, since they were not worshiping as Christians.
Ashanti to Zulu: African Traditions (Picture Puffin Books) - Cricket did not want to READ this entire book, but I read the headline for each letter. We discussed the pictures and I read more of the ones that she was interested in.
A Plump and Perky Turkey - This was a rhyming style Thanksgiving book and both Cricket and my husband thought it was silly (I'm not sure if they meant that as a positive or a negative though).
Missing Mittens (MathStart 1) and Bug Dance (MathStart 1) - We won both of these books in the Curriculum Clean Out hosted by Homeschool Creations from the blogger troutwife. My daughter has really enjoyed these books and a highly recommend them for some basic math concepts and just a good book. Cricket really enjoyed the dance in Bug Dance!
Bedtime Books (That we haven't already counted):I'm No Turkey!
