Little House in the Big Woods – Jennie Fitzkee

Reblogged from A Teacher’s Reflections:

I began reading aloud a new chapter reading book, Little House in the Big Woods, by Laura Ingalls Wilder.  In thirty minutes, I had read only four pages.  Four!  There was so much happening in the story, we had to stop and talk.  That always means learning.  And a captive audience.

Let me back up, as there is much to tell about yesterday…

The day before, we finished reading The Story of Doctor Dolittle.  At the end of the book I closed it and said, “I don’t want the book to end.”  This is what happened next:

Ella said, “Can we read it again and again and again?”

Me:  ” I wish we could, Ella.  Your Mom and Dad can read it to you again.”

Ella:  “But I don’t have the book.”

Me to all the children:  “Good books are meant to be read over and over.”

  5. This is so true. Good books are meant to be read over and over again. BTW, I love LITTLE HOUSE IN THE BIG WOODS. A childhood favorite and my children fell in love with it when I shared it with them. We ended up reading the entire series!

    Neat! Those were some of my earliest and favorite books. I read to my girls all the time and when the boys came along, to them. Even at 12 they liked their story time. Kids today don’t generally get to be read to and I think they are missing a lot.
