5 chapters in The Midwife's Apprentice (Cushman) ch 8-12
Rise the Moon (Spinelli)
Turnagain Ptarmigan! Where Did You Go? (Guenther)
Knuffle Bunny (Willems)
Horatio's Bed (Ashforth)
No Jumping on the Bed (Arnold)
The Magic Kerchief (Larson)
15 tracks of The Golden Compass (Pullman) on CD
No Jumping on the Bed got many laughs, Rise the Moon has beautiful illustrations, and The Midwife's Apprentice is in great demand and at this rate we'll finish it tomorrow. The Ptarmigan books triggered some great discussions on birds, alpine valleys (we live in one), and camouflage.
This book is one of our all time favorite books. We just happened on it at a thrift store and we read it all year long. I just had to share.
We are also reading Charoletts Web. I have never read it and it is amazing. I am going to be taking notes on good chapter books to read aloud to your young children.
