I have been busy reading some GREAT books. The books I am reading are books my oldest will be reading in the fall for 6th grade. I like to pre-read all of the books she will read for the school year so that we can have great discussions about them. I am a huge fan of children's literature and highly recommend reading the following titles:
A tale based on ancient history and the choice a young boy has as to who he should follow.
A wonderful tale about Eleanor of Aquitaine and her life. It is told with humor and is completely fascinating.
The title here made me not so eager to read this book...but this book is WONDERFUL! It tells the story of Mary through her own perspective and feelings toward Anne Boelyn. Fascinating story.
I have read a couple other books as well, but these are my favorite so far. I will continue reading and posting favorites.
