When our oldest was in first grade, I really did not know much about books for six year olds. (and I would not call this a six year old book either) So I asked the teacher for advice. This is one of the books she picked out. It actually came is a set with some really good ones. I don't particularly care for this one, but somehow it has hung around the house all these years.
Yesterday I saw Mr. M carrying around this book and reading it to himself. I am not sure who read it to him, but he seems to have it down pretty well. I love his inflection. In fact last night during FHE, we were taking turns reading out of the For the strength of the youth book. I have the younger kids repeat after me. I can say Mr. M is a hoot to listen to. If my voice goes up, so does his and so forth. At one point I even sang the words to a tune to see if he would repeat the words to the same tune I used, and sure enough he did without missing much of a beat.
