I have to say, I LOVE reading to the girls at bed time.
We have been slipping away from it in Spain, and it is the very first time I have managed it here. That is a very sad fact indeed. I am going to have to make a much stronger commitment to making bedtime stories happen regularily.
That said, what are your favourite books to either have read to you, or that you have read aloud? C'mon, there must be tons of good ones, and this way maybe we can all find a new one.
I love any and all of the Arthur Ransom books...well, there is one I am not so fond of.
Youngest loves Ramona, it's OK...I love Sophie, which the Brits will recognise, and maybe can tell us the author as I can't remember and it is fantastic.
The Cimorene series was amazing, actually called the Enchanted Forest Chronicles(?) by Patricia C. Wrede....fantastic, we read a bunch of them back to back one day in the Bahamas while waiting for weather, I wasn't sure my voice was going to make it, but it was so worth it.
Also anything at all by Patricia Polacco.
Oh, I could go on and on....Nomad asked me to put up a link to a list somewhere....I may do just that, but the three or four of you who are not away for the long weekend, you can also put up some selections you love.
I am just so glad I got to lay in bed with the girls and read stories. The world is balancing out right again.
