One Response to “Favorite Read Alouds”

  1. Matthew Says:

    Little britches – yes, excellent series.

    Elsie Dinsmore – not so much.

    Elsie is a pious snob, not a Christian worthy of emulation by any young girls I shall be responsible for as parent.

    I’ve reviewed a review on her books:

    And the original review:

    But I highly recommend that other, more worthwhile books be used to impress upon your ladies the wonderful nature of true girlhood.

    Unfortunately, I’m not aware, at the moment, of books that will suffice in that regard.
