really liked it
bookshelves: books-i-own, kid-books, read-out-loud
Read from January 28, 2011 to March 17, 2012

We're reading this out loud now. I know we're not reading them in the order they were published but we're shooting for more of a chronological sort of thing :-) The chapters take about 50 minutes to read out loud though so it's slow going.

*** We just finished this. It took over a year and that really hurt us. We've read a bunch of other books in the middle. Now my youngest is old enough to basically sit through a chapter (not all take a full 50 minutes) but the language is old and at times sort of flowery, and I could tell we were losing him. My daughter's 7 and held up much better :-)

it's still one of my favorites though, and I think as the kids get older they'll love it :-)
