Couch Time

Just started our new read aloud The Swiss Family Robinson.

Do you know what a firkin is?

I love the language! But if it drives you nuts to have to look a word up every other page...it may not be the book for you.

My kids think the dictionary is cool. They consider it a fun activity to define words...go figure!

Oh I can't WAIT to read that book with the kids. It's on our to-read list! :) And I have a beautifully illustrated hard cover copy of that book on our shelf~ just waiting expectantly! :)

We'll think the dictionary is cool, too! :)
