After finishing Picture Book Preschool from Sherry Early of Semicolon fame, I've decided to read longer chapter books with my almost five-year-old this year, books like Charlotte's Web, The Wind in the Willows, Heidi, Little Women, Little House on the Prairie, and this nice illustrated edition of Anne of Green Gables. My daughter has loved the Anne movies since she was 3, so she's excited about reading the book, and excitement about reading is one of the most important things for her to learn at this stage, in my opinion. We've read four chapters already!
So my selections for this challenge will be:
- Anne of Green Gables read aloud to an almost 5-year-old girl.
- The Blue Castle this one intrigues me since it was written for adult readers and it's not set on Prince Edward Island. Though I would love to visit P.E.I., I think I will enjoy reading this unique side of L. M. Montgomery's works.
