we finished alice

Every day after lunch we have reading time. I set the timer for twenty minutes and I read a book without pictures to the kids. First, we read book number one of the original Mary Poppins series. Then we started Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. We have a copy that was designed by Helen Oxenbury. The illustrations are breathtaking. There aren't many pictures in this book, but every now and then the kids would do a collective "gasp" when we would get to a picture page.
We just finished this week. Next we'll read Indian in the Cupboard. What are you reading these days?

  1. I love children's books with beautiful illustrations! I think it helps teach children an appreciation for discriminating which things are really beautiful. It seems that ya'll are really enjoying your reading times - it is our favorite times of the day. We are currently reading the Elsie Dinsmore series.
