Tonight I started reading Pippi Longstocking to Iris. The new version, the one pictured above. The reason I specifically chose this book is that there are a few illustrations thrown in here and there by Lauren Child, who illustrates Charlie and Lola . We will do one chapter a night for 11 nights. So far she seems interested, though did express her preference for "the books with the paintings that have words on them". Yeah, yeah. Pippi is such a fascinating character, though, so I hope it is enough to hold her attention. If not, we'll try again in a little while.
