"Children are made readers on the laps of their parents."
Robotson and I finished The Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler for his book club. The next selection is his choice and he chose Little Women. He heard about it on The Radio Adventures of Dr. Floyd podcast and asked if we had it. Of course we do! In our own reading, he wanted to start the last Harry Potter book, but I'm not sure he's ready. I talked him into giving me some time to think about it. His second choice was On the Banks of Plum Creek, book four of the Little House series. I have to admit, I love how Robotson doesn't mind reading books with girls as the main characters. He loved Anne of Green Gables and Esperanza Rising, but he also loved Moby Dick and Tom Sawyer.
On Tuesday, I found some great books at a consignment sale. They are for Christmas, but I'm really excited about them. I did give the girls one of the books. They've been requesting There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly, since we saw it in a puppet show a couple months back. I was excited to find it for them and they were thrilled! I've read it dozens of times already.
