Right now I have Rachel and Christian reading "The Ministrel in the Tower" by Gloria Skurzynski. I have asked them to read a chapter and then write a short paragraph decribing what they have read. Today Rachel's (she's 10) especially delighted me so I thought I would share it here:
"Kidnapped! Our heroes, Roger and Alice, STILL trying to get to Bordeaux, run into a huge, century-old tower. Yet apparently, out of the blue, two men (not the fanciest at all) kidnap them and turn them into servants. How will they escape? Find out in the next chapter!"
Of course I am not at all objective, but I thought this was so cute! Perhaps she'll write those exerpts on the jackets of books...find out in HER next chapter...LOL!
