Greetings

Greetings moms, dads, and teachers (and those young-at-heart)!  Do you ever read the books your kids read? I imagine that teachers do read the books that they recommend to their students, or have read them in the past, but parents, do you read them (after your kids are old enough to read to themselves)?  Some of these books are truly wonderful.  I am currently reading a book that my ten-year old daughter recently finished, Ruby Holler by Sharon Creech, a thoroughly enjoyable story (so far) of twin orphans, Dallas and Florida, who cannot seem to get adopted, or find a permanent home. That is, until they live with Tiller and Sairy, a quirky but loving older couple who live in the woods of Ruby Holler. I also read Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech. As a literature (and art) major in college, I never imagined myself reading children's books and enjoying them so much.

I welcome your comments! : )
