Family Read Aloud- March 2016

Tonight our family finished our very 1st Family Read Aloud book! We read Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder.51-t2bzhjell-_sy344_bo1204203200_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.

      That’s awesome! Yes, my son was asking, “Can we just keep going on to Farmer Boy?” LOL! The only reason I’m switching it up is for my oldest. She needs something a little more exciting this go ’round. And I’m not sure where Farmer Boy falls in his book list for next our upcoming school year. I think it was the prior year (Ambleside year 1), but I’m not certain. But, we definitely will continue on with the series.

      I am excited to read the series as well. Somehow in my childhood I only read On the Banks of Plum Creek and Little House on the Prairie. I don’t even think I realized there were others at the time. SMH.

      Looking forward to going on this journey with them.
