Chronicling the books we read to our children (and perhaps the books they read themselves). Can we read 500 before they turn 12? Only time will tell.

Read to Julia, February 21, 2005

We went to the library today and got some new books:

Heckedy Peg by Audrey Wood, illustrated by Don Wood. A mean witch turns a family of children into food, but their mother rescues them by figuring out who is who. A creepy story, well told and beautifully illustrated. This is a family favorite. Borrowed from the library.

First Tomato by Rosemary Wells. I thought this was a Max and Ruby story, but it isn't. Kristen said it's kind of weird. Borrowed from the library.

Doctor DeSoto by William Steig. Another favorite. Doctor DeSoto is a dentist with a fox for a client. He's worried that the fox is planning on eating him at the next visit, but Doctor DeSoto has some tricks up his sleeve. Classic William Steig. A Newbery Honor book. Borrowed from the library.

I read another chapter of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader to Jaymie.

Julia begged for Horton Hatches the Egg but we couldn't find it.

I read I Can Fly and Chicka Chicka Boom Boom to Stanley.

Jaymie read a story about a pirate lassoing the moon to some girl while we were at the library. She wants to borrow it when it is available next. The dance teacher at the library recommended it to them.
