If we value the pursuit of knowledge, we must be free to follow wherever that search may lead us. ~ Adlai Stevenson

A good book...

Cassia picked this book up at the library last week, and we started reading it yesterday. Only two stories in, I have to really recommend it! It is very funny, and the main character, Molly Whuppie, is delightful and resourceful. Reading it with a (at least somewhat) relevant accent helps too. The kids were laughing like crazy at the second story. I realized while reading it that although we have read Roman, Egyptian, Greek and Norse mythology, we've never explored the folktales of America, so I think we'll try those for a while. And we can't wait to read the next story in this book, Tater Toe. Even the title is promising!
