The Reading Corner came to my mind one night as I was deciding what to do with this little hard-to-get-to-corner of the library room in our house. At first, I was going to put a little shelf, but it just wouldn't really work and would just add clutter to the room. Instead, I thought, "What if I just stuffed this corner full of pillows and blankets and told the kids this that this was their new reading spot?" So, I did, and it was an instant hit! I made this over 3 weeks ago, and they still love it and use it every single day! Peter is read to for probably 2 hours a day by either Josh or Claire. It's a perfect solution for school time during the day: Peter doesn't want to participate with us all the time (I had anticipated that...) so much of the time, I can send Claire out to read to him, and work with Andrew and/or Josh and visa versa. It's been magic. Peter LOVES it. I'll often look in and see 2-3 kids all cuddled up in the corner listening to a book being read out loud. Claire's reading skills have improved by leaps and bounds, and Josh's relations with his brothers has improved. Best invention ever. I'm pleased.

I love to read and do reviews for Compass Book Ratings!
by Dan Brown
I like that the plot twists and turns a lot...and it makes you think. However, I don't appreciate Dan Brown's endings in his books. I find the endings incongruent with the rest of his stories--why make it a romance for the last chapter...
I loved this book. I'm a sucker for fairy tales/fantasy. This was so well written! I can't wait to read all the rest of her books!
I'm reading this one again. I liked it the first time I read it. I'm still liking it for the second time around. I like all of Shannon Hales' books. **Still lots of fun the second time around! I do like this book for a comfortable...
