Summer Reading

I intended to keep track of everyone's summer reading this year, but I wasn't very good about doing so. My boys didn't share any of the books that they read with me. Luckily, my three older girls did tell me about some of the books that they read.

Tidewater Valley: A Story of the Swiss in Oregon by Jo Evalin Lundy

Animal Farm by George Orwell

Around the World in Eighty Days by Jules Verne

Countess Kate by Charlotte Mary Yonge

Read Alouds

The Wanderers by Elizabeth Jane Coatsworth, illustrated by Trina Schart Hyman
Based on the author and illustrator, I expected this book to be a winner. I wasn't disappointed. My husband and children found the story and illustrations delightful.

Freddy Goes Camping by Walter R. Brooks
My husband and children thought this book was amusing. Brendan read these books when he was younger and enjoyed them. This was the rest of the family's first introduction to the books.
