Pinocchio

"I wish Pinocchio would never end"

We have 2 chapters left of the original version of this classic story, and to be honest, I don't think I have ever heard the whole story. It is amazing, however I was worried when I picked it up from the library that it would be too deep for A. I was wrong...while there are extremely intense imagery and metaphors throughout the story, and a very large vocabulary, she not only grasps and understands all of it, but LOVES it, and last night she said she wished it would never end.

I am glad I chose it. Maybe now I will stop underestimating her.

We loved Pinocchio too! I'm loving getting to read the classics with my kids. When I was a kid I really didn't have the guidance on what books to choose. I read and read but read very few classics. Fun!
