So glad you are liking The Tale of Despereaux! IMO, it is a great book and both of my daughters felt the same!Originally Posted by lildago;2439673;
We're looking for some good family read-alouds for the summer... now that school is out and all the sports they participate in are over for a while, we have some down-time to read some of the heftier books. Harry Potter 7 is out - I can't wait to read it but I think I'd go mad trying to pace it out at a read-aloud rate of a few chapters a night... I plan on devouring that one in a day or two.
lil, is The Sweetest Fig something you'd recommend for a read-aloud? What age level would you say it is targeted toward?
