Our Read-Alouds--Part One

My oldest daughter when she was 4 years old

During our last school year (2010-2011) we read the following books:


Christian Heroes: Then and Now Series by Janet Benge and Geoff Benge:

Evening Read-Alouds:

The Chronicles of Narnia Series by C.S. Lewis:

  • The Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe
  • Prince Caspian
  • The Voyage of the “Dawn Treader”
  • The Silver Chair
  • The Horse and His Boy
  • The Magicians Nephew
  • The Last Battle

*The set we have is the same set my husband had as a child, and he has had the pleasure of reading these books to the children.

My husband works overnight, so he reads to the children on his nights off.

The Crimson Cross series by Peter Marshall:

The Crimson Cross series is inspired by a mysterious silver and ruby cross, a precious relic of the Holy Land, originally given to Christopher Columbus before his epic voyage of discovery. In each volume it is passed on to a young hero or heroine who has proven to be worthy of it. As they play a crucial role in dramatic moments of America’s history, they face difficult choices and challenges – not unlike those confronting today's youth.                                 ~ From the website

  • Mercy Clifton: Pilgrim Girl
  • Nate Donovan: Revolutionary Spy
  • Kate Winfield: On the Oregon Trail (this book doesn’t seem to be still in print, but it can be found on Amazon)
