Today my 13yo read:
a chapter of Locked Rooms by Laurie R. King
George vs.George by Rosalyn Schanzer
and finished up Finishing Becca by Ann Rinaldi
(hows that for variety
I will be reading to her from Montmorency; Doctor, Aristocrat, Murderer before bed.
DD loves anything Ann Rinaldi and so that got a thumbs up. She also liked George Vs.George but was rather insulted that I asked her to read it because 1) it was a picture book and 2) *I (she) already know about George III!*. We are both really enjoying Montmorency and will be looking up the other's in the series when we are done.
I read to 8yo ds and 11yo DD
three chapters of The Young Reader's Shakespeare version of Macbeth
5 pages of The American Revolution by Bruce Lancaster
Several chapters of 2095 (time warp trio)
and a chapter of the WITCH book The Courage to Change
Both are enthralled with Macbeth as they were with Hamlet. Ds likes The American Revolution, but then he would as there are lots of battle descriptions LOL!
DD read the beginning reader Rain, Rain, Rain outloud.
