Read Aloud Challenge (week of Nov 6th)

Recently my friend Debra at Footprints in the Butter resurrected an old challenge that I used to participate in, and she has challenged her readers to share what books they are reading to their children.

Lately, Lauren's been wanting to hear The Boxcar Children series of books by Gertrude Chandler Warner. She convinced Oma and Col. Opa to read quite a bit to her while they were here visiting. I think Col. Opa ended up reading the end of one mystery and the beginning of the next. I finished up reading the fifth book in the series, and we're already a third of the way through book six.

Lauren has also been listening to Addison read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone when she babysits. Addison's busy schedule means that they aren't moving rather slowly through it, and we're now waiting for the audiobook version to be available at the library.

I haven't been reading anything to Brennan lately, but he has been listening to a lot of audiobooks. My goal for this week is to pick a new read-aloud for him and to actually start it.

If you'd like to share what your family is reading this week or if you'd like to find some new read-aloud ideas, you can join the weekly Read Aloud Challenge.
