Welcome, Anne Shirley
Jesse has been reading Anne of Green Gables to M at night. It has become a delightsome romp for all, with many tragical, magical and enchanting bosom, kindred friends. My friend Alison introduced me to the series. Thanks Ali. It is so fun to listen to Jesse reading. Jesse and I laugh at Anne's antics while M is a touch bewildered by it all. She still enjoys it, and I think she has found a kindred spirit in Anne. She'll often say "I have a picture of it in my mind" since there are no illustrations. I am delighted to watch my husband foster a love of reading into our little 6 year old.
What are your favorite books from this young, young adult genre? I'm thinking of Black Beauty and Misty of Chincateague, but I'm afraid they might be too intense. I'd love to make a list so I can look for them at the bookstore. We're reading one every week, so it's hard to keep up.
