1. We LOVED this one too…the sequel is pretty good also. We haven’t done much reading aloud this summer and I am so behind on blogging. We finished Julie of the Wolves in early June, but I keep forgetting I want to write about it. Madeline and I have been trying to get through Dragonwings for over a month, but we haven’t had many nights to read. This summer has been filled with nights staying up late for playing outside with friends and other adventures. Not to mention that she has been devouring so many books on her own that some nights she has just been reading her own books. I didn’t see much that appealed to us for the July Newbery challenge list, so I think we are going to get back on the bandwagon in August. 🙂

    Meanwhile I finally read To Kill a Mockingbird (hard to believe, but I’ve never read it before). I finished on Wednesday so that I could start Go Set A Watchman, but I wasn’t ready. I am letting my thoughts linger on Mockingbird for a few more days. Most people have had years or decades to think it over, and I just couldn’t go straight from one to the other.
