Our current read-aloud is Stuart Little after finishing all but Now We Are Six of the Milne books (we'll go back and pick it up later). Today's chapters include the one where the family thinks Stuart has gone down the mouse-hole. I just put Margaret and Nate to bed, am sitting at the computer surfing and suddenly hear "Stooo-art" coming from Margaret's room. I hear tales about this kind of thing, but this is really about the first time a "living book" has so caught her imagination. How wonderful!
