We’re busy packing for our big move in a few weeks, but I’m never too busy to read. I’ve been using my Kindle a lot – taking it with me when I go on errands with my husband or reading in bed. I also have a great hard back book going.
Fugitives of the Forest by Allan Levine is the story of the Jewish people who hid in the forests during World War II to escape the Nazis. Some were partisans. Some just were hiding to save their families. Quite a while ago I read Defiant which tells the same story. It’s so heartbreaking to read all the things that the Jewish people suffered during World War II.

15-year-old son – Small Arms Visual Encyclopedia by Martin J. Dougherty
13-year-old son – Knives, Daggers and Bayonets by Tobias Capwell
11-year-old daughter – Trading Faces by Julia DeVillers and Jennifer Roy. This is a book about twin sisters who switch places to see what each other’s lives are like.+
9-year-old daughter – The Ersatz Elevator by Lemony Snickett
7-year-old son – Lost Treasure of the Emerald Eye by Geronimo Stilton
4-year-old son – Ten Apples Up On Top! by Theo LeSieg (Dr. Seuss). This is a silly book about three animal friends who run around with ten apples balanced on top of their heads.
2-year-old son – Alfie Gets in First by Shirley Hughes. We love all of the Alfie books. He’s such a normal little toddler/preschooler with a little sister.
Are you ever too busy to read or is that a silly question?
