I recently found out about this weekly meme, called Read-Aloud Thursday @ Hope Is the Word (found it via Homegrown Learners, oh how I love my homeschool bloggers!). I am excited to take part because I love reading aloud to my kids. And just the other day I was asking my friends on Facebook what they are reading aloud to THEIR kids. And I also, I'd like to start highlighting some of the great Usborne Books & More titles I have to offer. There are so many good ones available!!! So, this is perfect for me!
Last week we finished off Hank The Cowdog #4 Murder In the Middle Pasture. So, of course, Preston demanded we start up #5 as soon as possible. The fifth in the series is called Faded Love. Hank feels unappreciated for all the work he puts in on the ranch and decides to leave "for good" to finally focus on his love life. Oh boy. As you can image Hank encounters all kinds of troubles on his way to visit his "true love." That dog can't go anywhere without running into trouble, can he? And I don't know why (ok, maybe I do), but when I read Hank out-loud, I have to do it with a bit of a twang. Lol! He is just a good 'ole country boy, after all!
I am also reviewing a children's book called The Lion's Deceit, written by Mpho Otukile from Botswana. Preston read this one out-loud to me. You can read the review of this title here.
