    The month of reading aloud a lot: week 3

    We spent the third week of our reading aloud challenge in France by my family. It was a nice time there as my parents and my sister spent a lot of time with the children. The only sad thing about this week was the Notre Dame fire. My mother was born in the street next to the cathedral so it was a shock for her. During this week of holiday, we could work a lot on the reading aloud challenge. My parents still have lots of children books at home. This post may contain affiliate links.

Great quotes about reading “The reading of all good books is like a conversation with the finest minds of past centuries.” Rene Descartes “The books that help you most are those which make you think that most. The hardest way of learning is that of easy reading; but a great book that comes from a great thinker is a ship of thought, deep freighted with truth and beauty.” Pablo…

    The month of reading aloud a lot: week 1

    The first week of my reading aloud challenge is now coming to end. Until now, this challenge has been fun. I read to the children every day and we already could read several books and stories we really liked. This post may contain affiliate links. See the Disclosures page for more information. Methodology For information, the list of books read this week includes several children magazines. I count them as books because these are very qualitative publications that include several stories that are very well written and beautifully illustrated. When I allude to them in the list, then I’ll give both the name of the magazine (we receive every month…

    Childhood books I would like my daughter to read one day

    This is the first article in my month of reading aloud (a lot) to children. I have been remembering novels I particularly loved as a child and wondering whether my children, and especially my daughter who is now learning to read, would like them too.
