1. We just started “Betsy, Tacy, and Tib” after a delay for about a week. (Visit from family, short trip away, other obligations kept getting in the way. We’ve never read Johnny Tremain or Carry On, Mr. Bowditch as read alouds but my oldest daughter has loved both books. I remember liking Johnny Tremain (which I first read as an adult a few years ago). Maybe I should consider those for read alouds for us…

  2. Finally we finished Michael Faraday and the Dynamo. It’s a wonderfully warm book about a great man and a great scientist, written almost as a novel. We really recommend it.

    It reminds me a bit of Carry On Mr. Bowditch, which we’ve read aloud more than once and highly recommend too.

    I hope you soon feel well! I think we’re mostly well around here now, and our next read aloud will start on James Herriot. Hopefully it won’t take months due to illness like the Faraday book did! I’ve never read him aloud yet, but it could be a lot of fun.
