Another prize in our library reading club – our 11-year-old son was given a 128-piece Lego set. We went to a puppet show at the library this week which three of our children enjoyed. The others were a bit old so went on the lookout for books to take home. So on to what we’ve been reading…
I’ve been reading a couple of biographies – The Girl in the Italian Bakery by Kenneth Tingle. It’s an autobiography of a man who grew up in my dad’s hometown (kind of cool). Also, Unspoken Abandonment by Bryan A. Wood, an American soldier who spent part of 2003 in Afghanistan. The book is about his time there and what it took for him to recover from everything he experienced while there.
14-year-old daughter – Pimpernel and Rosemary by Emmuska Orczy. This one she took from Project Gutenberg Australia.
13-year-old son – Cannons of the Comstock by Brock and Bodie Thoene
11-year-old son – A Street Through Time by DK Publishing
The True Adventure of Daniel Hall by Diane Stanley
9-year-old daughter – Little House in the Big Woods. I told you she loved these books. She re-reads them a lot.
7-year-old daughter – Marie-Claire by Kathy Stinson
5-year-old son – Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel by Virginia Lee Burton
2-year-old son – The Little Polar Bear by Hans de Beer
I hope we have piqued your interest and you’ll find something here you want to read.
