Tuesday Tales

A weekly peek at what we're reading.
Post your peek in the comments and share your favorite books!

Anne is reading
Let's Bring Back by Lesley M. M. Blume

An amusingly prim, old-fashioned word for "commotion"; particularly amusing if the kerfuffle in question is not particularly prim.  Two delightful but equally underused synonyms: "hoo-ha" and "hullabaloo."

Holly is reading
Alone at Home by Barbara Shook Hazen

Amy covered her ears to drown out the sound.  She wondered why she ever wanted to stay home alone.  Then the ringing stopped.  And so did the scritch-scratch sound.  The silence was even scarier.  Amy couldn't help it.  She cried.

Lily is reading
School Days, a Little House Chapter Book by Laura Ingalls Wilder

School was closed the next day and the next while the blizzard raged on.  It was only the first of many blizzards that long, hard winter.  Sometimes there was no school for weeks on end.
