Trivium Pursuit

Read Aloud Suggestions

Dear Laurie,

This year I began slowly shifting over to using the trivium method, but am interested in finding books I can read aloud to my 2nd and 3rd graders. Please give me any suggestions you might have.

Thank you, Julie, CA

How about these: Shasta of the Wolves by Olaf Baker; Little Lord Fauntleroy by Frances Hodgson Burnett; The Terrible Wave by Marden Dahlstedt; The Matchlock Gun by Walter Edmonds; books by Marquerite Henry; or The Borrowers by Mary Norton.

    I remember the first read aloud story my children and I did together, “The Secret Garden”, and it will always be one of the fondest memories of my time together with the children.

    We are really enjoying Marguerite Henry’s writing at our home. We just finished the biography she wrote entitled “Benjamin West and His Cat Grimalkin.” I, as a child, enjoyed “The Borrowers.” What great suggestions, Laurie!
