Read in January, 2011

We've been reading folk & fairy tales lately, both for the entertainment and the cultural reference. While Logan didn't enjoy Sleeping Beauty, he really liked Hansel & Gretel. It was interesting to read it to someone who had no idea what was going to happen and had never heard the names. He thought it was very funny when the old witch said, "Nibble, nibble nubble, who gnaws my house to rubble?" A year ago, when he was almost 6, I think this would have scared him. But at almost 7, he was riveted by the story but not scared. The illustrations by Zelinsky are beautiful, as his always are. The witch isn't too creepy looking. The house is amazing, with its pancake roof and candy stained glass windows.
