Family Read Alouds

Back in 2007, we started consistently reading out loud every night before bed.  There's nothing like sharing stories together, and we all enjoy this time together.  Now that the boys are older and we might not read every night, we sure do try.  Because, as I once infamously said (and the boys won't let me forget) "If you don't read, you don't finish books."

This is a running list of what we've read.  Unfortunately, I haven't kept track of audio books we've listened to on trips, and it doesn't include any of the read alouds we've done during school hours.

  1. Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nimh
  2. The Original Adventures of Hank the Cowdog #1
  3. The Further Adventures of Hank the Cowdog #2

Oh how I love a good book list! ;-) I see many that we've enjoyed as well as a few that I'll be adding to our list.
