1. I’ve gone and posted already and missed out on Read Aloud Thursday AGAIN! I’ve been reading aloud the same books all week. We have this series of Penuin books of classic children’s fairy tales but with a touchy-feely thing on each page.

    We bought them for my youngest son, but my oldest has become attached to them. I like that he has because now that we’ve read the stories so many times he reads them himself when no one’s around to read to him.

    It’s the sweetest thing in the world to sit and listen to him read to himself. His favourite (and mine to hear) is The Gingerbread Man. He gets so excited everytime it gets to the part where he says ‘Run, run as fast as you can. You can’t catch me, I’m the Gingerbread Man!’

    There’s quite a few books in the series, and we have others but the bedtime routine is for us to only read four books. So he brought up The Gingerbread Man, Jack and Jill, The Three Little Pigs and Jack and the Beanstalk.

    Because those are quite short, we do sometimes cave and read him one or two more stories but those have varied from day to day.

    This is the link to The Gingerbread Man book:


  2. I’m out of town this week so I’m not participating this week but loved reading your read alouds. Esp. the last book as you mentioned. I also like the idea of The Blue Butterfly very much! Thanks for sharing!
