We are going to play catch-up with Madam How and Lady Why this week. I am trying to decide if I want to drop it or not. This is the only book I’ve ever read that my boys whine about listening to. My inclination is to push through, as it usually only ten minutes a week with five minutes of remembering where we are before and five minutes of narration and talking about it after (a 20 minute lesson, tops).
