Enriching Our Minds Though Quality Books

Each school term we read a book aloud together. This is a book which we can all enjoy; from ages 7 – 13. All of us love to read and enjoy books.

Our favourite by far was ‘The Green Ember’.  We bought it on Audible. It was lovely to give my voice a rest and also listen while driving. We can’t wait for the sequel to come out on Audible but I fear not much school work or jobs will get done when it does!

Reading as a family unites us. It brings us closer together.  It is often our favourite time of the day.
