The True Vyne
I went and read the list of books and it brought back so many, many memories. I've read a good deal of that list to my children. I read the Narnia series when my kids were 4, 6, and 8. They loved them. People do underestimate a child's ability to comprehend. Reading to my kids every night for 16 years was one of the best things I ever did as a parent.
Hope, Do your children remember? Do they talk about you reading aloud?I wonder if my children will read to theirs..
My kids do remember. Youngest son (age 20)and I were reminiscing the other night about the favourites. Two Little Savages was one of the best for them all. So much so that when I sold it at a home school fair and had to buy another copy eventually. The Little Britches series by Ralph Moody another favourite.I started reading to them because my mother in law read to her children - and she had 11 of them - and it was such a positive memory for my husband. We read some of the same books he had heard as a child. I would read to them the last thing at night before bedtime.I have plans this summer to buy copies of all the favourites so that they will each have a library of them for their own homes.
