We have read through just about half of The Children's Homer. Emily doesn't like all the war and killing. Today, she said that she's tired of hearing about people being killed. Can't say that I blame her! So, I've been searching the internet for chapter summaries on this book, to no avail. I suppose I will read it and summarize it myself. Being halfway through, I hate to just stop. But educationally speaking, I don't feel like much is gained by reading it. In fact, I believe it has suppressed the desire on my part to read aloud as well as the desire on Emily's to be read to. For this reason, I'm choosing to summarize the remainder of the book. Sorry Homer!
