Holes (Sachar)

We’ve finished our latest read aloud. There were a few moments when we wondered if this was too intense for our children (violence, mostly), and I think we both did some editing as we read. But the kids were hooked by the puzzle of it all and delighted in figuring out the connections between the story of the past and the story of the present. It is an ambitious book. Sachar tackles challenging issues. We paused to talk more about this book than previous ones.

Now they want to see the movie? Has anyone seen it? Any good?

It was perhaps a bit too soon for this book, but it was exciting to see how much they (and, I admit, we) got into it.
