I recently found out about this weekly meme, called Read-Aloud Thursday @ Hope Is the Word (found it via Homegrown Learners, oh how I love my homeschool bloggers!). I am excited to take part because I love reading aloud to my kids. And just the other day I was asking my friends on Facebook what they are reading aloud to THEIR kids. And I also, I'd like to start highlighting some of the great Usborne Books & More titles I have to offer. There are so many good ones available!!! So, this is perfect for me!
We finished up Hank The Cowdog #5 Faded Love early this week, and will be starting on #6 Let Sleeping Dogs Lie soon enough. We don't get many days in between Hanks, that's for sure. Preston won't allow it! He read a book to me last nite, though. It's called How to Catch a Star, written by Oliver Jeffers. This is a book about a little boy that dreams of catching a star to have as a best friend, but his plans are foiled by logistics. The star is really high up there! He tries to recruit a sea gull for help, attempts to lasso it with a heavy life preserver and other such brilliant ideas, but to no avail. I won't give away the end, but I will tell you that this is a really cute book. The illustrations are lovely, and the little boy's ideas are intriguing and humorous. My son loves this one!
