Tonight our family finished our very 1st Family Read Aloud book! We read Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder.We loved this book. My almost 10 year old daughter said she gives it 3.5 stars. My son, 7 years old, said he gives it a 5 star rating. When I asked them what was their favorite part, they both agreed it was when Pa was in the woods trying to scare a bear. Turned out, the bear was a large tree stump! We all laughed about that for a while. Their least favorite parts were when cousin Charley was stung by yellow jackets. They did, however, think he just might have deserved the punishment.
I am looking forward to what we read together next. I haven’t quite decided on what it will be just yet. My son would like to go on the the next Little House book, Farmer Boy, but I told them we would try something else first and come back to Little House series.
