COVID-19 What I Miss
Day 34 of quarantine...I miss the LIBRARY...I asked my girls aged 8 & 13 what they are missing most and both of them said "going to the library." We had finished reading The Hobbit and Fellowship of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien and needed something a bit less dense before diving into The Two Towers. Our librarian suggested a series written by Lloyd Alexander called The Chronicles of Prydain. There are five books in the series and we had just finished book two when the quarantine was ordered and libraries closed. Yes, I broke down and bought book three, The Castle of Llyr, online...Its THAT GOOD!
If you as a parent can't wait to share The Lord of the Rings with your youngsters, The Chronicles of Prydain by Lloyd Alexander is a great introduction to the genre of fantasy. Stay safe, wash your hands and read a good book!
