Bookworm Marie-Kate has made huge leaps and bounds in her reading since starting CP in September. Sophie's Tom is her bedtime book that we share each evening, we just love Dick King Smith. And for the past week as soon as she gets up, before school (and after) she reads Tobie Lolness, I mean really reads it and asks for help if she doesn't understand a word or pronuniciation.
Still on the subject of books and reading, yesterday I found a copy of The Canterville Ghost (easy reader one) in our local library, and thought I'd give it a try last night with Alexis and Marie-Kate. To my great surprise they were engrossed from the first page (Oliver and Charlotte abhorred any classic when they were small and still do, only Gabrielle devours just about any book she comes across)!
Two good things to mention about this little book, one, at the end of each chapter, there are some questions to see if you've been listening correctly (squabbles to answer first) and two, there are four more of these books left on the library shelf, so Saturday afternoon we have a date to keep (library open twice a week for just 2 hours) if they want to read The Hound of the Baskervilles, Five on Treasure Island et cetera...)
Pour finir, avec du retard, une photo prise par Marie-Kate pour sa Mamie et sa Grannie de ses poupées.
