Critterfixer Posted June 18, 2012 Share Posted June 18, 2012 Today I happily returned The Mysterious Benedict Society to the library. We didn't quite finish it. I'd be happy not to see it again, but one of my boys has such a low lip about it that I'm now honor bound to check it out this weekend at the other library so we can finish it! I'm hoping he'll forget about it. Maybe I can "forget.":D Regardless, I'd like to see the list of books you hate that your children loved to hear you read aloud: you know the kind! Poor plotting, bad dialogue, dragging on and on, too many forays into the character's emotions, telling not showing. Please feel free to list classics too. The realm of poor read-aloud choices would surely include perfectly lovely stories to read by yourself that just kill you to read them aloud!
