Good afternoon! It’s a noisy day here; Phil is up in the attic replacing the floor boards and us three are attempting to do a little work amongst storage boxes and bags of things that we’re going to donate to charity that we no longer need. What a lot of mess and chaos…but I hope the end result of a safe attic and organised boxes will help clear my sore head in the long run. I’m looking forward to a little quiet to sit and read. What type of books do your children like? My son has always enjoyed poetry and has even been published! We haven’t yet delved into Shakespeare, mainly because I’m not a big fan; but perhaps if we start off with a child’s version it will make it more interesting for us all. And if not, there’s always Casey At The Bat, another great poem that’s loved by my kids since we did a small unit study about it. Who is your favourite poet? Share in the comments and let’s have some fun.
