Carrying on the Tradition
My first grader has discovered reading in bed. Every night she begs me to leave the light on for just "one more story..." I try to look stern, "All right...just one more." But inside my heart bursts into song...Hallelujah! I've won her over to my side.
Can't wait to share with her some of my childhood favorites: The Boxcar Children, Trixie Belden, Tales of a Fourth-Grade Nothing, Little House on the Prairie, Ramona and Beezus, The All-of-a-Kind Family, The Little Princess, Little Women, Anne of Green Gables, Shel Silverstein & Jack Prelutsky poems. The list goes on and on...
What were your favorite "past-bedtime" reads? I'll add them to the list!
p.s. If you are my children's grandparent (or just really, really bored) and want to see more adorable shots of my children, taken by their artistic aunt, click here.
