Book Nook

In honour of today being the feast day of St George, I've chosen The Reluctant Dragon by Kenneth Grahame.  I've not gotten around to reading Shakespeare's Henry V to them yet, thus why that one wasn't chosen for today.  

I grew up watching and loving the Disney short, but hadn't known it was based on a book until I had children.  We love Grahame's The Wind in the Willows, so I figured we'd get this book and see how it is.  Unfortunately the kids haven't let me read it to them all the way through yet, but both have liked what has been read.  Often with new books they walk away a few times at first, but then will read through it all the way.  The book does feature St George meeting the dragon, thus the connection to today.  So, happy feast of St George!
