Read Alouds

A few days ago we finished Anne of Green Gables as a read aloud!  I completely love that book and it's sequels, and they will always hold a place near and dear to my heart.  Lydia enjoyed reading it with me although it is almost all over her head at this point.  I'm planning on rereading many of our read alouds when she gets older, but right now it is good just to get her used to it and to let her listen to great language.

I had a rough time deciding what to read next with her.  It came down to Anne of Avonlea, Little Women, The Girl of the Limberlost, or The Secret Garden.  As you can see on my sidebar, I chose The Secret Garden.  I actually didn't like this book when I was a kid, and I never read it all the way through.  I think I will like it much more now.  I recently read The Lost Prince, which is also by Frances Hodgson Burnett and A Little Princess has always been one of my favorite stories, so I think I'll like The Secret Garden this time around.  I will probably do Little Women and The Girl of the Limberlost as read alouds at a later date, and reread the Anne of Green Gables series by myself.
