Watch: My Family and Other Animals
Listen: Don Henley Boys of Summer
Cook: Emeril Lagasse There's a Chef in My Soup
Read: Children of Summer
I was going to post this collection towards the end of summer,
but after reading this thrilling post from Molly
I was inspired to share right away.
It has probably become apparent that I love reading,
but reading aloud to my children is one of life's
greatest rewards. For an hour (almost) every
night we transport ourselves to somewhere irresistible.
This collection is one of my older son's favorites. He started
collecting insects in earnest after reading Children of Summer.
But you don't have to be a potential entomologist to
find pleasure in the antics and adventures of this eclectic family.
Emeril's fish-sticks are a must make. The movie is
immensely entertaining but doesn't reach the shoulder
of the book (in can't cover the material). If you enjoy it I
recommend reading the book aloud with your family.
And Don Henley? He is for me. All mine.
Sigh. The library.
Adds meaning to our life without spending money.
