The Princess Academy

Posted by Phil Aaronson at 5:39 PM

Last night the kids and I finished off Shannon Hale's The Princess Academy. This time my oldest daughter was the one who enjoyed the story the most. She started Kindergarten this year, so a book about going off to school and having a series of adventures was absolutely perfect. Over the past few weeks they even started drawing wintery scenes and snow princesses. And while it was fun for me to read a book I hadn't already read it wasn't quite as much fun as The Hobbit, but overall still a fun read.

My favorite Dad moment was when we started the story and the girls peppered me with question after question. Who's Miri? What's Linder? Goats? On and on. I think we made it through only a couple pages that first night, they were so curious about the new story.
