Story Time

Once supper is out of the way the kids start to hover around me.  Is it time to read yet??  It is a bit of a tradition around here for me to read to the kids before bed.  My ideal is a picture book or two for the little ones and then a novel for the big kids some how I am currently reading;

The Horse and His Boy (again)
The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood
Alone in an Untamed Land (from the Dear Canada Series)

Plus, a book for Hannah and one for Joel.  The other night I told the kids to go and get their books for read aloud time, and off they scurried.

My sweet Joel returned with a big grin on his face and gave me this book;

(A book which I borrowed from my brother.)  Not quite a bedtime read for a 5 year old.
I looked at Joel and said, “Oh Honey,”I don’t think you’d really like this one.”
He looks at me with those big brown eyes and says, “But I wanted to hear, ‘Jack in the Beanstalk’!”
Thankfully, I have the story of Jack in another book.
Do you have a story time?
