This Term’s Reading…For LissaLou

Here are the main books that LissaLou has been listening to and narrating, except for Babar which she reads (not easy, as it is all written in the French swirly whirly cursive writing that we are trying to learn!) and translates.  We have both enjoyed them all, but LissaLou’s favourite was undoubtedly Understood Betsy, a great tale about a young girl who leaves a life of being fussed over in town for a very different one of responsibility and challenges in a small farming village.

There has definitely been a Viking theme going on, with the Vikings covered in Discovery of New Worlds, then their arrival in Britain in Our Island Story, and finally the story of the third generation Viking Richard the Fearless and his early life in Normandy in Little Duke.  Now our conversations are full of mead and Valhalla!
