What We Are Reading
This has been a fun week of reading. Besides lots of Egypt reading, we have been continuing our American Girl adventures with Samantha and did more holiday reading.
We also found time to let Froggy explore and choose her own books. One book she seems to be coming back to again and again is her Bible Stories. We have the second book which covers Joshua to Queen Esther. Froggy chose it from the synagogue library. While this book specifically labels itself for children the stories are accurate to the originals, complete with all the violence, gore and questionable content. Luckily this book is still a read-together for the most part so I am able to offer explanation and commentary as she studies the stories. I love that she wants that she is learning these stories I think I would have preferred either that it wait till she was a bit older or that she chose a less authentic telling as the introduction.
