“Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle’s Farm” by Betty MacDonald was a quick, but enjoyable read. The kids adore Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle so there are usually many choruses of “Read another chapter!’ to be had.
We started book #4 of The Read Aloud Project, “The Wind in the Willows” by Kenneth Grahame, immediately after finishing Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle. The first chapter was a challenging read, but I suspect that once we really get into the story (or meet Toad) the kids will be eager to hear more.
