I have not done a Wednesday Weads in a long time. So here is a new one for you.
We found Wilfred to the Rescue at the library recently. It introduced us to Brambly Hedge. We fell in love with the classic story and the fabulous illustrations. While this book is not by the same author as the Brambly Hedge series, our interest has definitely been piqued and we will be reading all of the books in the series.
I grew up with Beatrix Potter and with the Burgess books. The stories and character development as well as the illustrations are all along the same lines. Classic and beautiful, encouraging personal character development, etc.
Once all four of the original books have been read aloud, we will then look for the DVDs or videos. We are so looking forward to them.
