Other Reading

Our Family read-alouds this year were diverse and entertaining.

First, those we listened to on CD:

Anne of Green Gables* and Anne of Avonlea by L.M. Montgomery

Masterpiece (Broach)*

Out of My Mind (Sharon Draper)*

A Christmas Carol (Dickens)

Voyage of the Dawn Treader (C.S. Lewis)

The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey (Trenton Lee Stewart)

 The Swiss Family Robinson (Wyss)

The Book of Three (Lloyd Alexander)

Treasure Island (R.L. Stevenson) *

The Whipping Boy (Sid Fleishman)

These are the novels I read aloud that weren’t included in this year’s medieval history reading:

We Didn’t Mean to Go to Sea (Arthur Ransome)*

The Mysterious Benedict Society (Trenton Lee Stewart)*

Around the World in 80 Days (Jules Verne)*

And Then There Were Five (Elizabeth Enright)

By the Shores of Silver Lake (Laura Ingalls Wilder)*

A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Shakespeare)*

We also read through Matthew, Joshua, and Acts, and a lot of poetry, including multiple works by Robert Frost and Robert Louis Stevenson.  We read heaps of picture books, but for whatever reason, I didn’t keep track of them.

Any stand-out novels you’d recommend for us?
