Thanks to Kristine from Jewels of My Own we've begun a new read aloud this week. The book is "Cracker!:The Best Dog in Vietnam" by Cynthia Kadohata.
We've actually gone past the Vietnam war era in our history studies, but Kristine's hearty recommendation convinced me to try it anyway. I'm so glad we did! My Boy and My Girl are loving this story and beg me to keep reading.
Thanks for the tip, Kristine!
