Current Read Alouds:
Icing on the damper – a read aloud on Australia during the depression as a reading journal practice (more on reading journals in part three) which we are doing with Cheesel (a friend) and her sister.
It Shouldn’t Happen to a Vet – James Herriet – funny!
Beautiful Girlhood – my Mum and I are ploughing through it slowly; it’s not hard going, just hard finding the time to do it!
In case you’re a little confused by the numbering and how I’ve listed titles but not books, I’ll mention they are sorted by our reading list record categories. I”ll talk about reading records another time, in part three or four.
Obviously, as I haven’t read them, I can’t exactly recommend them, but my brother would have read most of them, and as we talk about the books we read, Mum can monitor what would be OK for me to read. What Josh hasn’t read are either book recommended from Mum or from a trustworthy source.
