Books that made me neglect housework:
Stealing Athena by Karen Essex
The Building of Jalna by Mazo De La Roche
Favorite Read-a-Louds to my kiddos:
Juniper/Wise Child/Colman by Monica Furlong- A wonderful fantasy trilogy by a fascinating woman (mostly known for the religious biographies she wrote).
The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznik- Words and drawings tell the tale of an orphan boy in Paris living in the walls of a train station. A giant book, but easily read in a day or two.
Snack Time by the Bare Naked Ladies- Extremely catchy and witty kids’ music.
Latin Playground by various artists
More later, when I remember them. 🙂
