The Classics

28 Jan

A friend of mine who is sadly moving away dropped by yesterday with a few things for the kids.  She gave them some paints, pastels, canvases, stickers, a few Dutch card games and a collection of English Classics.  Considering my kids are schooled in Dutch, French and Italian I’m really excited to introduce them to a little bit of Anglosaxon literature.  My kids absolutely love to read.  They pass hours curled up on the couch reading their novels and comic strips.  They almost exclusively read in Dutch so I think these books will be a great motivation for them to start reading in English.  And I have to say that I’m quite keen to re-read a few of these classics myself.

    But they have read the “modern classics” – some of the Harry Potter books.
