Bits and Pieces of Our Days: The Recent-Books-With-Ramona Edition

Ramona and I finished our read-aloud of Anne of Avonlea. We read it only over breakfast on the days when Anne and Betsy could join us, so it took awhile, but it was worth it to once again share a book about "that Anne girl" with all of my girls.  Such fun, and made for a delightful start to our day.


Also recently finished a read-aloud of The Castle in the Attic by Elizabeth Winthrop. 
Fun, adventure, and interesting ethical issues to discuss. 


Read-aloud in progress: The Cottage at Bantry Bay. It's Hilda van Stockum ... need I say more?


Twenty and Ten,  by Claire Huchet Bishop. The last, I think, of the WWII books for this year.


And, one that we can't wait to get our hands on 
(we'll be watching for the UPS man tomorrow!): 

The new Penderwicks! Cue the squees! We're all giddy!

Anne of Avonlea is one of my all-time favourite books. All the Anne books are, really - I have to group them together on my "favourites" list or else they'd just overtake the whole list.

I love Anne of Avonlea so much, too, Sarah. Although, I always miss the presence of sweet Matthew. :)

I am really excited to read the new Penderwicks book, too! Can't wait to share those books with Emily in a few years! I always love your booklists.

Danae, we started it yesterday, and we are loving it so far, but page 6 made us cry.
