Read-aloud with the kids: The Indian in the Cupboard by Lynne Reid Banks. So far so good. The kids are truly enjoying this story. (Although we haven't read anything they loved nearly as much as The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe) I do substitute and skip over words here and there (like kill and stupid...), but other than that, this book has been a great addition to our read-alouds.
My personal reading: Emma by Jane Austen. I had read Emma before, of course. I mean, Pride and Prejudice is my all-time favorite book. However, I am enjoying Emma even more than ever. I remember finding it so wordy and a bit slow, but going in this time with those expectations has made it thoroughly enjoyable. What wit!
What are you reading? Do you have suggestions for great family read-alouds? I'm always looking for more!
