What to Read Wednesday: Vacation Edition

This week’s WTRW is a day late, because we’ve just returned from an extended literary field trip of sorts. Namely, a road trip to California wherein we once again visited The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios.

We were also thrilled by their immersive Jurassic Park ride, having also read those books just this past fall.

But tomorrow’s Dr. Seuss Day, aka Read Across America Day, which is practically the Superbowl in my book-wormy homeschool world. Once I conquer the post-vacation laundry deluge we’ll participate with gusto, all themed snacks and binge-reading with corresponding crafts and movies. In the meantime I’ll simply share last year’s Seusstravaganza, plus book titles which we’re currently enjoying.

If you’re a slacker, like me, simply dye some hard-boiled eggs green.



Little Men – sequel to Alcott’s famously charming Little Women, it follows Jo as mom/schoolteacher to a house full of boys; simply delightful and renewing inspiration for our own homeschool
The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society – last to the proverbial party, I’m even in an online group of the same name. Fascinating historical fiction told in the form of letter correspondence.
The Handmaid’s Tale – I finished this one last week, it was as riveting as the Netflix series that Husband & I binge-watched when it first came out; didn’t much care for the anticlimactic, abrupt ending.

And now for the link up!

  2. Thanks– yes it is so fun! We haven’t been to the Orlando one (we hadn’t yet read the books when we were there three years ago), but I know it’s even better than the one in CA. 🙂

  3. Looks like a fun trip! We’ve been to the Universal/ Harry Potter in Orlando and we are dying to go back. It is so much fun.
