Fred, (and often the older boys) have taken over our summer reading program for the younger ones. Fred has been picking out mostly classics and chugging through a couple of chapters each night after brushing teeth and saying prayers. Andrew, Peter, and John-Paul have all helped out when they hear its a story they remember liking as a kid. Joe and Matt have also 'wandered' into the room to make sure the stories are being properly represented. We managed to get through a bunch of good ones so far. Here's the list:
Alice in Wonderland
The Prince and the Pauper
Gooseberry Park ( not a classic)
I think Dr. Do
olittle was the biggest hit so far, but we're still in the midst of The Prince and the Pauper. My personal favorite is Alice in Wonderland, since I tend to see the world in much the same way that book presents it. Curiouser and Curiouser?
If you haven't read anything good lately, pick up a book. Its not too late you know. Summer has a few weeks left and a book can take you anywhere you want to go. Make it a vacation, compliments of me!
