…there are a pile of parcels waiting at your front door, full of books of course!
Little men divided up the parcels and tore into them
…well one little man tore into his parcels. Ethan painfully opened his parcel at a snail’s pace. We were on the edge of our chairs. It was killing us.
Ethan was concerned about its contents as he knew the supplier didn’t sell books he would think were fun. He asked, “What terrible danger lies within?”. Heheheh.
This is what we received.
“Vivaldi and the Invisible Orchestra” – this is a book I had pre-ordered earlier this year to supplement our Vivaldi reading. It was delightful.
“The Priest With Dirty Clothes” – a book that was on backorder from earlier this year was a truly delightful book.
When Ethan finally opened his parcel, he found a Life of Fred elementary title.
Recently I’ve read about people using these books as interesting read alouds rather than their sole curriculum. My interest was piqued so I thought we’d have a closer look at one. Ethan was curious too and asked to read some of it straight away so that’s a good sign.
After opening our goodies we piled up the books we wanted to read our way through, all snuggled up on the lounge together on this rainy Monday.
Yes we did some schooly looking stuff too…later in the day once we’d had our fill of reading.
Rainy days are designed for reading you know, not Math…or so we think.
