Reading Aloud Challenge -- Part 2 of the Listening Aloud Edition

This is part 2 of the Listening Aloud Edition.  We've been traveling, so I have read almost nothing out loud, but we did a lot of audiobook listening.  And no photo.

So what have we been reading aloud this past week?

Made in Heaven by Ray Comfort and Jeffrey Seto.  We are continuing to (allegedly) read a two-page spread daily.  Um, or not.  We only did one this week.  This book is great.

The American Patriot's Almanac by William Bennett.  We're reading from this one daily too. Supposedly.  We only did it once this week.

A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens.  Which was great, of course.  My kids kept pausing it to compare the accuracy of the Muppets movie version. 

Goals for next week: We are home, so we will be back to reading aloud.  Finally.  I've missed it, but it has been nice to have a couple of weeks basically off.

Rules for this linkup - if you are blogging about things you are reading aloud to your children, or just blogging about reading aloud in general, feel free to link up.  Audiobooks count too.  I would very much appreciate if you link back to this post.  I'll leave the linky open through Monday at midnight.

How about you?

Lauren's listening to an audio book this week that made me think of Trina. I'll have to blog about it for you.

I just posted about the American Girl audiobooks that I found in our library's online resources. Although you may need to start listening to them for Trina, I have a feeling that your boys may enjoy the history aspect of them. The only complaint I've heard from Brennan is that he's heard the Julie series a dozen times too many.
