attempted read aloud
The other night I decided to resume our big kid "storytime" after the little boys and the baby went to bed. I remember reading A Wrinkle in Time as a child and during packing I set it aside for Will. However, I only read 3 chapters aloud before he snuck the book off my nightstand and stayed up until 11pm to finish it. The next night I read to Mary while Will was in the shower and that night she took a hint from her brother, took the book to bed, and finished it before breakfast! Now they want me to swing by the library today and get the next volume in the series. I guess this is a good strategy to get Mary off of her Sisters Grimm, Lemony Snickett, and Shadow Children series kick. I wonder what I shall pick to entice them to finish next, perhaps Anne of Green Gables?
