I love finding books that both boys can be engaged in, have loved reading (or being read to), and the ability to take it a bit deeper. With all the planning thus far and knowing that our summer weeks are a bit scattered over June, July, and August, I wasn't so sure that I wanted our boys using different books for the summer session. This reminded me how much they enjoyed "The Magician's Nephew" last summer.
Now, I am off on a gathering expedition for "Voyage of the Dawn Treader". So far, I've found a few sites that have some good things and have a few resources at home. Part of our study will be to cover the discrepancies from the book to the movie.
Ideas so far:
- listen to Focus on the Family Radio Theatre version
- read the book
- build some boats
- go to creek to see how boats float
- visit some real boats
