Summer Reading

Catching fish and being caught by books, it's a great way to spend the summer. For now, Simeon's hooked on The Penderwicks: A Summer Tale of Four Sisters, Two Rabbits, and a Very Interesting Boy. When I snapped the picture, he looked up just long enough to inform me that he plans to read all day, taking breaks for food only and possibly the bathroom.

Thank you Grandma, for this terrific book/hook!

Aah! The joy of summer vacation reading! I can hardly wait to start mine... Sitting under the tree, a tall lemonade at my side, an excellent book in hand... :D

How awesome! I can't wait until my oldest enjoys reading.

I WANT TO READ THAT BOOK SO MUCH!

Ah, what the hey! I'll start my summer reading with one of my favourite books... Le compte de Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas. In it's original form. On a hot day like today, we can't do much else than sit in the shade and enjoy a good book!

This book was a HUGE hit with Older Girl! There's nothing better than hearing your child laugh, a deep satisfying laugh, while they are lost in a good book.

My 9 year old daughter and Iread that last summer and it was wonderful. My two oldest tend to read the same way - bathroom breaks and occasional bodily nourishment.

Hi Suzanne, I found you through the big network of Catholic homeschooling moms! I don't expect you to remember me, but I was in your class at TAC briefly. I think we worked in the kitchen together freshman year. Anyway, I'm Carmen (Johnson) Liffengren. I've just re-connected with Kristen. This is exciting to re-connect with my classmates at TAC!
Anyway, my son Luke (age 7) and I read The Penderwicks this year and we really enjoyed this book. I enjoyed it immensely. It is definitely the kind of book I would have read when I was a little girl and it appeals to a boy too! Well, I just thought I'd finally leave a comment on your blog. blessings, Carmen

Hello, Carmen. I do remember you. Not very clearly, but clearly enough to know who you are. Thanks for commenting. I'm always glad to hear from fellow TACers.
