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.
