Book Week 2012.

August 25, 2012

9 year old as a suffragette, complete with banner and fliers.

6 year old as Gretel from “The sound of music”

My story series. Suffragette by Carole Drinkwater


The Sound of Music by Bert Fink.

9 year old took a bold turn this book week parade and decided to be a suffragette. It lead to lots of discussion in our house…. which was helpful and an education for us all. I was totally unaware of the lengths women and men went to for equality on this issue. And while I am here, I will give this series of books a plug. Our 12 year old started reading other books from this history fiction series when she was about 10 and enjoyed them immensely. They cover royal history, some ancient history and more recently modern history. This months scholastic bookclub (which I usually groan when it gets pulled from school bags) has a great deal on these books. 22 books for $88 dollars. Brilliant!

6 year old, after much discussion, decided on Gretel Von Trapp from The Sound of Music…… and yes! it is a book. Her costume came via the grandparents. A fabulous authentic Austrian dress, and a few other bits from their amazing dress-up box. Thanks guys.

I hardly made a thing!

Hope you enjoyed your book week as much as we did.

I couldn’t resist putting this one in. Gretel, Polly ( from The Magicians Nephew by C.S. Lewis) and Emily.
