|This week's book basket|
|Story books in the den|
While almost all the children's books are kept in the school room, I keep a selection of story books in the den so that it is easy to pick up and read a story in quiet moments (e.g., meal times, transition moments, while Mama is washing dishes and children are waiting to pray the rosary). Story books on our shelf:
James Herriot's "Treasury for Children"
"The Book of Children's Classics"
Randolph Caldecott's Picture Books
"Saints and Heroes" by Andrew Lang
"Uncle Wiggly's Story Book"
Here I also keep any chapter books we are reading (currently: "The Trumpet of the Swan" by E.B. White and "The Horse and His Boy" by C.S. Lewis).
