Summer Reading: Attached to an Author

At Lextin, we read aloud every day.  Daddy even gets in on the action in the evenings and weekends.  This summer, we have a fun line up of read alouds for Curly and Tiger (with Bee listening in).

Our strategy this year?  To read several works by the same author.

Our authors of choice?  Laura Ingalls Wilder and Dick King Smith

Curly will be reading through the Little House series this summer.  I fondly remember reading those books as a child and saved my old copies.  Curly and I now get to share my set of Little House books.

A few years ago I discovered author Dick King Smith as Curly and I explored a few of his works.  Now it’s Tiger’s turn to enjoy the fun animal stories.

And as a summer tradition, each year we read through Little Pilgrim’s Progress and enjoy the stories of Little Christian and Christiana.
