Summer Read-Aloud

At the beginning of the summer break, I decided to read aloud a special book to Tessa, Ross, and Nate. One of the advantages of all living under the same roof is that I can read bedtime stories! I wanted to enjoy a book with the kids that they would remember in years to come. Well, this book did it. The kids begged and begged each night for just one more chapter. I have to admit that it was hard to put down. We finished it near the end of our road trip to Maine and back, and we all were all so sorry to say goodbye to Despereaux, the tiny mouse that saves the princess. Kate DiCamillo is one of the best children's authors that I have read in a long time and have ordered another book by her, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. I can hardly wait!
