We haven't accomplished a lot of academic work this week, but have done some reading.
A couple weeks ago we started The Best Christmas Pageant Ever.I remembered reading this as a child and wanted to share it. I think it was as much fun to read out loud as to myself. While there are a few black and white illustrations in the text, there are just so many mental images that the text evokes that it is just plain fun.
About a month ago, I began reading this Luther biography aloud. I had intended to read it towards the end of October to coincide with Reformation Day, but we all know about good intentions, don't we? Anyway, we are now about three quarters of the way through it.
We have also read several picture books about the holidays over the last several weeks, but I don't remember the exact titles so I won't mention them.
I am linking this post with Debra at Footprints in the Butter where she hosts a weekly read aloud challenge.
