@Amccracken I love JtB.  I am reading volume 2 with my 4th grader.  This morning we were having a conversation about how difficult some of the language is.  She asked why.  It reminded me of John Branyan's Shakespeare 3 Little Pigs scene.  It is something newer homeschoolers might not know about and is hilarious!! But, it also exemplifies why reading these types of stories with our children matters if we are going to have them reading complex works in high school.  🙂
