We finally did commence though and welcome the new friends in. Our new daytime read aloud is Wind in the Willows. We are enjoying our time with Rat and Mole by the riverside. We read many books with an old fashion speech pattern and very language. Yet this book feels somewhat daunting in its language. The chapters are very long but we are working our way through it slowly. We are still early in the book but Froggy is warming up to the characters as she gets to know them.
Our new nighttime read-aloud is A Wrinkle In Time. Abba was concerned that Froggy would not get the math involved and thus not be able to enjoy the book until I pointed out that I did not get the math involved until I was in High School and I was still very much able to enjoy the book. Froggy does not care about the math, she is fascinated by the inter-personal relationships and the battle of good and evil.
