We are about 10 pages from finishing our current read-aloud at the Chino House. Here’s what I love about being at this point in a book with my kids. When they get home from school tomorrow I could ask them if they would rather finish Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry or watch TV and eat Doritos and they would pick reading. It’s a great set up.
We have taken a long time to finish this book because we have to stop frequently and answer questions. The most asked question: Why…? Sadly, I never really have the answer.
Sweet little Cassie Logan and her family have provided a setting for a lot of conversations to take place that I have known for a long time that I want to have with my kids. I’m so grateful to author Mildred D. Taylor for her carefully crafted story.
