2 week check-out

2 week check-out:
our reading...

I can't say enough about this whole series. Nature, laughter, oh and just fun times. This book was great, a fun mystery about Jerry Muskrat's big cousin of the north.

We have been on a Roald Dahl kick lately haven't we, and how could we leave Charlie out? Well it was perfect reading for this time of the year. The children and their guardians were to present themselves at Mr. Wonka's factory on the 1st of February, and with Valentine's Day in the middle of the month? I can't think of a better time to read this book (and with sweets in everyone's mouths of course).

This book, well it was about a family trying out a new way of life, and getting to know each other all over again in the process. Adventure, freedom, purpose, love, and bravery all wrapped into one. Eoghan wanted to start it again the minute we finished, and that is saying something. I have a feeling more Moomin books will be in our laps soon. (I would however save this title for ages seven and older.)

Ooh, Charlie and The Chocolate Factory was one of my favorites when I was kid. Should be a fun read for all of you!

P.S. I left you a little something on my blog. :-)
