Papa and Maria (Try to) Read a “Classic” Children’s Book

This is lots of fun, and it’s also has a special significance. Papa reads many books with Maria, one of which is the classic Charlie Needs A Cloak by Tomie dePaola.

We still have some of our little kids’ books from the old days, and Charlie is one of them. We used to read this very same copy of this book to Maria’s Dad twenty-five-or-more years ago. It was one of John Paul’s favorites.

Many things have changed since those day, but this is still a wonderful, funny, and educational book. It has been taped up in a few places, but it works fine for “the next generation.” I hope we will always have big picture books for small children.

Anyway, here are some scenes from a recent reading.☺️ This video is accessible only from this link:
