January 2016 Book Reports

Don Camillo's Dilemma by Giovanni Guareschi, translated by Frances Frenaye - Read my thoughts. (inter-library loan copy)

The Book of Three by Lloyd Alexander is the first book in the Chronicles of Prydain, highly recommended by a number of friends of mine for (especially) boys. I enjoyed it and intend to pass it along to First Son once he's finished the couple of "assigned" books he has left for the school year. I think First Daughter will enjoy it as well.

Only two books! I have no explanation.

Other links are not affiliate links.

These reports are my honest opinions.

  1. We just finished listening to the Chronicles of Prydain a couple of weeks ago. All of the kids enjoyed them, and were excited to go places so we could listen, as I only played it in the car. Not sure how much Anthony listened, but he didn't complain, which says a lot. I had pre-read the series(and really enjoyed it). When we were done, Catherine immediately checked out all the books and read them.
