I just finished reading aloud the most beautiful book to my daughters. The Miraculous Story of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo was an exquisitely-written, moving story about a china rabbit learning how to love. I know, the plot sounds lame, but trust me--if you have kids between the ages of 6 and oh, say 11 or 12, run out and buy this book.
And just try to read it aloud without crying. I dare you.

Wow, I need to find that!
Sounds really great. Thanks for the good word!
I told my husband he needs to read it on his own.
Let's see if that actually happens. It's hard to get him to read anythong other than the Wall Street Journal.
Oh, sounds good. My kids love to read and this sounds like one we can all enjoy together. Thanks.
It sounds exactly like the sort of book I'd love. I can't make it through the Velveteen Rabbit without tearing up!
What a good mother!
I will pass this one along to my mom, who teaches kindergarten. Sounds like something she'd love. Perhaps a Christmas gift...
Kate DiCamillo amazes me with her ability to write a simple story and infuse it with magic.
Loved Because of Winn-Dixie, too.
Those are sweet times, reading aloud to your kids. Enjoy!
My daughter just read it with her reading group at school and loved it.
