We’ve had our first week at the library reading club and already my oldest daughter has won a prize. She didn’t like any of the books they were offering so they gave her a gift card to a bookstore where she promptly went and bought two hardbacked classics off the clearance table. Well, on to our reading list.
Myself – I currently have two books on the go. Raising Cubby by John Elder Robison. This is the story of a father with Asperger’s (a form of autism) raising a son with Asperger’s. This Life is in Your Hands by Melissa Coleman. The author’s parents were some of the first “back-to-the-land” people in the late 60’s and early 70’s. These books are both super interesting to me. I love reading how people overcome the difficulties they havve in their lives.
14-year-old daughter – Mansfield Park by Jane Austen
13-year-old son – lots of Louis L’Amour
11-year-old son – The Lego Book published by DK, a favourite publisher with us
9-year-old daughter – Our Canadian Girl Emily by Julie Lawson
7-year-old daughter – Madeline, The Three Little Pigs, a Snoopy comic book
5-year-old son – Franklin’s Picture Dictionary, Cowboy Small by Lois Lenski and What Do You Say, Dear by Sesyle Joslin
