Molly is reading The Horse and His Boy by C.S. Lewis.
It's part of The Chronicles of Narnia series.
She's reading some of it aloud to me - to practice her oral communication skills...speaking fluently in Chinese.
Molly read it in English not too long after she arrived in the U.S. as my new daughter.
It might've been a year down the road. This was to help develop her understanding of her new found language, and she was in an upper grade.
She did learn some English in China.
Now....she's reading the very same series in Chinese in order to further develop her native language and delve deeper into complex vocabulary -- written in Chinese.
I'm smart enough to know she's on chapter 14.
We are ALL listening to the wonderful Focus on the Family Radio Theatre version of it.
We listen each afternoon driving to my summer job (where girls stay with me in a little apartment setting), and we continue the story each morning on the way home.
Thrilling to say the least.
Great way to use drive time.
We recently saw The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (in Narnia series).
