We finished reading Clementine yesterday! It was such a good book it's actually hard to let it go. I want to live with Clementine forever:) You can read my book review here. Fortunately there are 3 more books in the series. I have The Talented Clementine which we'll start reading in the new year.
After we turned the last page and closed the book the kids and I talked about our favourite parts. Then they painted those scenes and wrote about them. One of our PLO's (prescribed learning outcomes) is to learn to express an opinion about books and to be able to give a reason for your opinion, so that's what we did.
We've just started our third novel by a well-known children's author, Cornelia Funke. I'm also reading Inkheart at home right now. What an amazing author Miss Funke is!
We've read the first two chapters and so far it's a big hit. The funniest bits are the naughty elves. They're kind and helpful (sort of), as elves should be, but they have a bad habit of saying things like "booger burps and reindeer poo"! Hilarious stuff when you're six years old :)
