Great idea for a blog post! besides my own, I only recognize a few of these titles... I will need to remedy that! I'd especially love to hear what families are choosing for their read-alouds. We love reading books that aren't "assigned", but it's a bonus if they take place in the same time period we are currently studying. Of course, my kids were DYING the other night as Ted read, "Walter the Farting Dog" to them. Funny thing- the description on the cover says "a family classic"! :-)

Not all are true. Everyone has their own way of thinking but I think they have to reconsider. I like to argue for the most accurate results.
