Today we had an all too rare moment. Corde decided she would read the Cyclops story from the Oddessey to Luca and Sander. She had a great time with it. She didn’t do voices (aside from making Odysseus sound like a Monty Python character once), but she did keep it interesting. She talked about how this poor Cyclops was just minding his own business and these people invaded his home demanding to be fed. She pointed out how dark it was that they made the humans crunch as they were eaten. Then she pointed out how cute the sheep were. It was a great time for all of them.
All this has me thinking we need to do this more often. It’s really worked out well for all three of them. Corde is funny to watch read. It’s good sibling time for them too. Plus, my secret favorite reason is it gets them all interested in books!
