‘Twas a long long slog to read through this with my two youngest kids. We took it a few pages at a time before bed many (but not all!) nights, and I think we were in it for over a year.
Truth be told, we were glad to be done when we finished, and I think we struggled to remember some of the narrative arc after so long. But there was a certain level of reward to finish, and they were exposed to quite the classic English vocabulary, as well as some French words that they’ve started tossing in conversations within our family.
