The Perfect Pasttime~ Reading

Here, at the Puebla Ponderosa, we love to read.
"Mrs. Cartwright" has always been an avid reader and has wanted her children to be the same. We teach our children that one of the most important reasons to learn how to read is so that they can read God's Word and learn how to live a holy life.
My littlest, "Inger", yearns to know how to read and is such an eager beaver.
"Marie" has just finished her first chapter book, The Boxcar Children, and has hit that, 'I love to read' stage where everything has finally clicked.
The weather here is finally tolerable and today I found "Little Joe" on the trampoline reading, Little Women.
We always are in the middle of a couple of read alouds as a family. During lunch we are reading, Anne of Green Gables. At bedtime we are reading, The Light and the Glory For Children.

Here are the top five reads of the last year at the Ponderosa:
Twice Freed by Patricia St. John
The Kingdom Series by Chuck Black
Bronze Bow by Elizabeth George Speare
Rachel Saint by YWAM
Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan

Oh, reading is so much fun!! and so good for the mind, ESPECIALLY when we can read God's Word! I remember reading The Boxcar Children. Wow, it's been a while. And Anne of Green Gables. What a classic!!
