We are joining in the read aloud along over here and reading The Rats of NIMH. When I say we I mean, I am reading the book aloud to the kids. We are getting through it quite slowly and I cant help thinking most of it must be going over their heads. I cant seem to manage more than one chapter a night, I'm just so exhausted by bedtime! They seem to be following the general story and eager to hear more, so I'll keep going. I'm definitely enjoying it. I never got to read this one as a kid.
