One Book Down, 51 to go

I read in spurts, it's unpredictable, but I did manage to finish my first book of the year.  Kildee House by Rutherford Montgomery, is recommended by Sonlight.  It was a sweet story about a man who builds a little house on a mountain and is overrun with raccoons and spotted skunks. I don't think it's quite interesting enough to capture the attention of my kids at this stage.  Maybe in a couple of years they might enjoy reading it on their own.  It wouldn't be my pick for a read-aloud.  It was worth reading, I just think it was a little slow.  I did like Jerome's care for the animals and how Jerome and the children's characters developed.  It is a hopeful story with a simple plot.
