More About Books

So, I have decided to make a list of books to read/listen too with Emma. This list is mostly for myself, but I thought I would post it here so 1.) I don't loose the list, and 2.) Just in case anyone else is interested in a list of books to read.

Love you sis Melisa

Oh, I think I remember "Snot Stew" from when we were kids! I will have to check to see if the library has it. Thanks Melisa! Love you too!

Used to own my own classroom size set of Fantastic Mr. Fox, so let's look through our book shelves soon. I did own many of the others too but gave them to school or libraries when I retired. You have many fine choices listed. Another idea is Heidi. You could start with a short version and move on to the complete one later. Emma would "get" the characters. Maybe she'd enjoy it as much as the original Wizard of Oz. Time will tell. Love, Mom S.
