Reading Aloud – To You! Part 5 (and a Bonus)


Here is another wonderful post on reading aloud from the excellent teacher, Jennie!

A Teacher's Reflections

My reading aloud The Poet’s Dog by Patricia MacLachlan continues with chapters eight and nine.  Chapter eight is 3:27 and chapter nine is 3:39.

Sylvan is stubborn about taking his medicine.  Flora wonders if Sylvan really left Teddy. She worries what will happen after the storm ends.

And, today was a bonus!  I went to hear Patricia MacLachlan, the author of The Poet’s Dog, speak at a bookstore.  Yes, this was the real deal!  She has written a new children’s book, The Hundred-Year Barn, which is absolutely wonderful.  If you love barns, history, and family stories, you will enjoy this book.  It feels like reading Miss Rumphius, by Barbara Cooney.

I greeted her, and she was thrilled to know I was reading her book aloud on my blog.  It is a privilege to talk books with authors.
