Jonah's class read The Trumpet of the Swan for their summer reading. I read it too and was delighted (somehow I'd missed reading this classic in my own childhood). It is a beautiful book, full of nature, fancy, and adventure. It is a story that is good, true and beautiful is the most wonderful of ways. It would be a beautiful story to read aloud and after I finish the Misty series with Rowan or after Daddy finishes Narnia with him, this one is next on our list to read with Mr. 4.
And in honor of summer reading, Rowan, Isaac and I made swan cookies for Jonah to share with his class. So much fun!
