It has been so fun to have my son keep this record of his reading. We are talking about his beloved books now more than ever, and sometimes his favorites surprise me. The month of May was strange because we basically unschooled–and are currently unschooling–in order to finish up our AO year. We had so many special events–birthdays, anniversaries, Mother’s Day–and so many appointments and dinner guests, not to mention our short annual vacation. Because our lessons were informal and less lengthy, E.-Age-Ten had time to do what he loves to do: read, and work in his garden.
Because there were so many books this month, I had him pick two favorites instead of just one.
|May Favorite #1:
by N.D. Wilson
|May Favorite #2:
The Puritan Twins
by Lucy Fitch Perkins
*Second reading this year–I still think the ending of this book is bizarre
**He read this a year ago, and it was too much for him. This year, it was much better. 10 is my minimum age for reading Wilson.
