Read Aloud Challenge- April 23, 2013

What have you been reading aloud lately?  We have been busy reading books both for school and review.

Our favorite book that we are reading aloud right now is, One Minute Mysteries: 65 More Short Mysteries You Solve with Science!  by Eric Yoder and Natalie Yoder.  Our review will be coming soon, so you will have to be checking back to learn what we really thought.

We are studying Ancient Rome and this week we have reading a picture book by Diane Stanley and illustrated by Peter Vennema, called Cleopatra.  It tells the story of Cleopatra and her life with Julius Caesar and Mark Antony.  You can see a sample here.

Last week we started reading, Moccasin Trail by Eloise Jarvis McGraw.  It is about a young man, Jim Keith, who has lived as Crow Indian and is now a trapper.  He learns that his sister and younger brothers are on their way west.  He decides to meet with them and help them. 

Another book we will be reading this week, is City, by David Macaulay.  We are really looking forward to learning more about Roman architecture. 

What are you reading aloud this week?

You can learn about what others are reading at Footprints in the Butter.

  1. I don't know if I knew there was a Diane Stanley book about Cleopatra! I am so definitely adding that to my list of things to read to Richard and Trina soon.

    Loved Moccasin Trail, though. :) And David Macaulay is always good.
