mothergooseof4 Posted August 9, 2012 Share Posted August 9, 2012 My kids groaned when I pulled out Swiss Family Robinson this morning. My 13yo begged me not to read it. I took a vote and they were all DONE with it. I really thought my boys would like it, but I think the language sounds strange to them. Plus, they said it is boring. We have read four chapters and I still feel like the story is being laid out, but they insist it's boring. Oh, well maybe in a couple of years. Or perhaps just not good for reading aloud. I hate leaving a book unfinished and will probably finish it myself. The only read aloud I can ever remember giving up was The Wheel on the School. We were so bored with that one, but I have heard that it is good and wonder if we missed out. We picked up Charlotte's Web, which I have only read to my oldest in the past, and they didn't want to stop. At what point do you allow your dc to set aside a book?
