tale of two sisters

Not much could delight this mother-bibliophile like the fact that
Amy and Elise have discovered the joy
of reading one of my favorite authors, Charles Dickens.

Amy began with Great Expectations, and her enthusiasm was contagious.

Now Elise is equally intrigued by A Tale of Two Cities.

This new trend should supply some good reading options for the summer ahead!

"I feel an earnest and humble desire, and shall till I die, to increase the stock of harmless cheerfulness." -Charles Dickens

Great Expectations was one of my favorites!

Love seeing the girls! I love when I have to shout at my children, "Stop reading and get to.....". Even though it may sound like I am irritated, my heart is glad that they love to read!

I love it when my children cozy up with a book! I know it thrills your heart to see them learn to love the finer things in life.

Charles Dickens? Girls after my own heart!
