What We Are Reading

We had a good month reading and now that we are into June we will probably read even more. We read quite a lot of books this past month but I will just name a few of our favorites. After we finished All-Of-A-Kind Family we started Rainbow Garden by Patricia St. John. We loved this book. It is about a little girl named Elaine that has been rather spoiled. She is sent to live with the Owen family in Wales and she is very unhappy when she first arrives. She finds a little garden that she loves and as she spends time there she begins to feel better and starts to take more interest in the Owen family. The garden becomes very important to her and makes everything seem worthwhile.  It is really a beautiful story and has such a nice ending. We all hated for the book to end. We are planning on reading more books by Patricia St. John this summer. 
We also read Heidi by Johanna Spyri. This book was also a hit and the kids asked several times a day for me to read it. I don’t remember ever reading this book to any of my kids so I really enjoyed reading it to the kids for the first time. It was a great book and I’m pretty sure most people know the story. 
We read several others, but the last book I will mention is More All-Of-A-Kind Family by Sydney Taylor. We started this book yesterday so we haven’t read that much, but so far we like it. It’s funny because sometimes I don’t think the kids really care for a certain book and then realize they love it. This series is one of those. I kind of thought they were a little bored when we finished the first book but they immediately asked me to order another one from the series – so I did. 
Finn came by to visit me again today. I love it when he comes and he always looks so adorable.
