Current Read-Alouds

January 4, 2012 @ 8:57 am | Filed under: Books

To Jane, Rose, and Beanie: David Copperfield. (At twenty minutes a day, we figure it will take us in the neighborhood of 100 days.)

To Rose, Beanie, and Rilla: The Family Under the Bridge. (Last time I read this aloud, Jane was about Rilla’s age. Eep!)

To Wonderboy, Rilla, and Huck: new Elephant and Piggie books appeared under the Christmas tree, so they are dominating our read-aloud time this week.

At night, Scott continues his read-aloud of The Return of the King. His voices are the best.

  1. Can my older kids Skype in for Scott’s read-aloud? They love that book but I don’t do voices.

  2. We just read FUTB (I had previously read it to Ian a few years ago) in November. Such a charming story. And Caroline got her first Elephant and Piggie readers from the library today! We had a good chuckle together over the priceless facial expressions in “Elephants Cannot Dance.”

    Can’t wait until your Fox and Crow book comes out … maybe she’ll be ready to read it on her own by then!

  3. I just noticed a pub date at GoodReads, of all places! It’s so funny to log in there and see my not-yet-pub’d books on my home page. Fox & Crow is Aug 7th and Inch & Roly (a level 1 reader from Simon & Schuster) is Aug 28th–same day as my middle-grade from McElderry. Going to be a busy month!
