I have one of the CD interactive games and I had a great time playing it. My DD is too young to read Nancy Drew yet but I have books from my childhood that are saved for her of Nancy Drew. However, my niece loves ND and has read a lot of them this summer. If you have your mom get in touch with me we can exchange the email addresses. I know she would love to chat with someone about them and I will tell her later today when I see her.

My DS is anxiously awaiting the UPS truck that has his copy of Harry Potter on it!

I know that some people do not like Harry Potter because it is about wizardry. But it is fiction and my ds and others know it. I really admire the books as they have gotten so many children reading them and parents too. The last book DS and I both read it and then talked about it. I just read that a father and son do the same but the father won't go past the spot the son has read to. They then discuss it too. That is good too as you can tie other things into the discussions.

DD#2 (15 yo) has read "Finishing Becca:A Story about Peggy Shippen and Benedict Arnold" and "The Secret of Sarah Revere" by Ann Rinaldi (Historian and Storyteller) This author has got my daughter's attention, and I am thankful for her writing.

We finished it too and I will have to admit that my eyes teared up too at the end.


Sonya - We have a couple of the Ann Rinaldi books also.

Robin,

dd will contact your niece soon. dh has been in hospital this week and we haven't had much time for computer!

I also enjoy reading the books she reads so as we can chat about them. This can sometimes give an insight into their world that would be hard to come by. At least when we talk about the thoughts or behaviours of a character in a book, it is 'safe ground' as we aren't discussing people we REALLY know!

Meg - hope everything is all right with your dh now and that it was nothing serious.

[At least when we talk about the thoughts or behaviours of a character in a book, it is 'safe ground' as we aren't discussing people we REALLY know!] How true, and they can't say you don't like a particular friend.

I found this site again! I had lost it recently.

The Tale of Desperaux by Kate Di Camillo. This was a great read, especially if you can get hold of the hard cover copy that looks like mice have nibbled the pages!
Also a story called Windows (not sure of author), about a young girl and her early days of blindness following an accident. A thoughtful and interesting read.
