Read Aloud Challenge 10/6
I don’t even remember the last time I participated in Debra’s Read Aloud Challenge over at Footprints in the Butter. It’s been a crazy start to our school year. Some Reading Aloud or er uh listening to an audio book has been happening. Not as much Reading Aloud as needs to happen but some is better than none right?
I have mentioned this before but I think it is such a great resource so I am going to mention it again. Ancient Faith radio has a podcast series called Under the Grapevine by Chrissy Hart. A few years ago Dr. Hart read aloud the entire Chronicles of Narnia series. These FREE podcast readings are still available on the website. So we finished The Last Battle and we’ve started The Magician’s Nephew.
Speaking of Chronicles of Narnia> series We finished listening to the Focus on the Family Radio Drama version of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and we started The Horse and His Boy. This book is presented after the The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe because in the Narnia series timeline it happens while Peter and siblings are Kings and Queen of Narnia. I’d forgotten how much I love The Horse and His Boy I am so glad that I get to enjoy listening to it as well.
We or rather Honeybear finally finished reading Charlotte’s Web. Supergirl is naming all creatures Wilbur. Doesn’t matter if it is a pig or not. I see a stuffed pig in future as a Christmas present. Honeybear is now reading Homer Price aloud to Supergirl. Supergirl also got to listen to King Tut’s Mummy: Lost and Found. Mommy read some one day and daddy read some on another day.
I’m hoping to finish Mara, Daughter of the Nile. I also want to start God King We haven’t made as much progress in Sonlight’s World History In-Depth part 1 program as I would have liked so we might overlap the end of Mara with God King. Oh we have continued to listen to Story of the World volume 1 on CD.
