I may weed some of these down. The two books about John Bunyan and the Pilgrim’s Progress go well together: “Dangerous Journey” is a child’s retelling of a “Pilgrim’s Progress,” and “Tinker’s Daughter” is a story about the author’s blind daughter. So I think those two go well together. But “Fine Print” and “Who in the World was the Secretive Printer?” are both on Gutenberg, and I may choose one or the other.
“Castle in the Attic” and “Battle for the Castle” are just modern day fantasy stories about a child with a toy castle that comes to life, but I think they will be a fun breather to add while reading about castle life. They’ll be readers, not books that I plan to read aloud.
In general, Emily’s reading is at this point strong enough that probably all chapter books will be readers. Picture books and other shorter works that can be read in a few days will remain read-alouds. It’s possible by the time we get to these books that Jenny may be able to read them as well, so if so, Emily can read them and then pass them along to Jenny.
