we have Little House!

It's been ages since we've been able to get our son to listen to a chapter book. I tried Freddy. I tried Pippi. We tried books he chose himself at the library. Nothin'.

Then I got inspired and checked our library for adaptations of the Little House books. I found this:

We've been reading it for four nights. I think he likes the big size and the large, colored pictures, as well as the fact that all the stories are about Christmas. I'm hoping that when we're done, we can start on Little House in the Big Woods.

Being a parent continues to be humbling. I've always been snobby about adaptations. Next thing you know, I'll be letting him read the Magic Schoolbus books that aren't by Joanna Cole and Bruce Degan.
