Fall is here. The weather is cooling off and school is in full swing. It's a little harder to fit reading in now with school taking up several hours of our day, but since we are all bookaholics we manage.
I read an incredibly sad memoir of a female doctor from Darfur who was tortured and managed to escape to England where her husband already was. Let me tell you - it really puts my "problems" in perspective. How incredibly blessed we are in North America with the freedoms we have.
My children's reading...
15-year-old daughter - The Secret Keeper by Beverly Lewis and Robin Hood by Paul Creswick. She's on a Robin Hood kick right now.
13-year-old son - He's in the States right now visiting one of my sisters and her family. Before he left he was anxious to go so to pass the time he was devouring some books by Jake Thoene - Shaitan's Fire, Firefly Blue, Fuel the Fire.
11-year-old son - King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table and Combat, a book of soldier stories
9-year-old daughter - still going with the Roman Mysteries
7-year-old daughter - What Do You Say, Dear by Sesyle Joslin and Grandfather's Wrinkles by Kathryn England. This is one of my favourites. It was a library prize and the story is beautiful. Every wrinkle on Grandfather's face is attributed to a special day in the life of the family.
5-year-old son - Millions of Cats by Wanda Ga'g. He is in love with this book. I think he likes the big numbers.
2-year-old son - Life in the Great Ice Age by Mike Oard. The text for this is way over our toddler's head, but he and his dad have made up their own story for the pictures. He has literally worn this book out.
Do your children have any books that they read over and over again endlessly?
