June 30, 2005 @ 7:08 am | Filed under: Books

Scott:
Little Children by Tom Perrotta (Scott says I should read this next)
The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference, by Malcolm Gladwell (he has been reading bits and pieces to me—fascinating)

Me:
The Bird in the Tree by Elizabeth Goudge
Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis (for the umpteenth time)
1984 by George Orwell (for the first time, surprisingly)

Jane:
Mara, Daughter of the Nile by Eloise Jarvis McGraw
Math for Smarty Pants by Marilyn Burns (tattered, dogeared, one of her favorite books)

Rose:
•the Samantha & Josefina books (and apparently she can’t decide which one to be today…she showed me a slip of paper on which she had written “Samfina” and “Josemantha,” her attempt, evidently, to satisify both role-playing impulses at once)

Scott to the girls:
Journey to the River Sea by Eva Ibbotsen

Me to Rose at quiet time:
The Borrowers by Mary Norton

Me to Beanie at naptime:
Brave Georgie Goat by Denis Roche

Me to all three girls:
The Wheel on the School by Meindert de Jong (still)
A Life of Our Lord for Children by Marigold Hunt

And on audio:
•(Jane) Number the Stars by Lois Lowry
•(all girls) Irish Folk Tales by Sharon Kennedy
