Is there anything better than curling up with a really good book? Our family has found a series of five books that make us wish we had nothing else to do with our lives, but read! We’ve been reading a five-volume series of Alaska adventure stories called Aunt Phil’s Trunk. I love reading non-fiction to my kids and these books have quickly become a favorite in our home!
