Summertime Reading

We are well on our way to enjoying a wonderful summer, full of good books, time in the sun and relaxing (although we do still have some school work to accomplish, as well)! So I thought I'd share some of our reading lists (so far). These are in no particular order . . .

Our current read aloud books:
Oliver Twist (Kindle edition) - Emma is reading this one to us at lunch.

A Wrinkle In Time - Emma is also reading this one.
Little House on the Prairie (The Little House 9 book set) - I'm reading this to my little girls.
The Chronicles of Narnia - We've been listening to this in the car. These books never get old, no matter how many times we read them.
