My Side of the Mountain

We have a few favorite read-a-loud books...Rascal by Sterling North and My Side of the Mountain by Jean George. 

Jared must have read aloud four chapters or more of the latter book today. I believe the copy he is reading from was his own childhood copy. 

Rascal was a baby shower gift from a friend and mentor. He had read that copy to his beloved nephew. And that copy had been his own. We treasure that book.

These two books speak of love of nature, friendship, and self-reliance.

Jared just finished the last chapter, and Beren said, I wish there was a book that continued this story.
