To Review:



This is the weather the cuckoo likes,
And so do I;
When showers betumble the chestnut spikes,
And nestlings fly;
And the little brown nightingale bills his best,
And they sit outside at 'The Traveller's Rest,'
And maids come forth sprig-muslin drest,
And citizens dream of the south and west,
And so do I.


This is the weather the shepherd shuns,
And so do I;
When beeches drip in browns and duns,
And thresh and ply;
And hill-hid tides throb, throe on throe,
And meadow rivulets overflow,
And drops on gate bars hang in a row,
And rooks in families homeward go,
And so do I.

-- Thomas Hardy

Reading Aloud :

English Literature for Boys and Girls We are on this chapter and we don't read a whole chapter in a sitting.
Famous Men of the Middle Ages I have a vintage copy of this.
Dave Barry Slept Here OK, this is completely random but as I said before the children were picking this one up and reading it so I thought it would be safer to read out loud. It is very funny if you already have a working knowledge of American History. The language is pretty bad though, hence the reading aloud.
The Little History of the World

The Tale of Desperaux Recommend by dear friend Linda. Lots of fun. We have a little mouse in our family with big ears and big eyes, the runt of the litter: Alex.

Sentinel, City of Destiny by Landel Bilbrey. I am reading a review copy of the book and I must say that my 2 little boys, 9 & 6 are enthralled. It is somewhat along the lines of Pilgrim's Progress. We read the chapter slowly discussing as we go. Andrew and Alex are great little boys to discuss books with. They make random jumps of logic into subjects yet to be discovered by philosophers. This has made reading this book a lot of fun.

Ambleside Time:

Little Pilgrims Progress
Anderson’s Fairy Tales
Asking Father
Pilgrim Stories
