1. We recently finished our last read aloud, A Barrel of Laughs a Vale of Tears by Jules Feiffer. It was recommended to us by Mrs. Rolfes. I had never read it before. Boy, was it hysterical. The kids LOVED it. The only thing they didn't love about it was that there was no movie to compare it to. However, our new read aloud, The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo, does have a movie to compare it with. For now though, the kids could care less about the movie and are more concerned about Despereaux heading to the dungeon with the rats.
