Yesterday, I read three books. I am posting all three here since I do not know what kind of time I will have to post tomorrow.
SIR GAWAIN THE TRUE by Gerald Morris (Houghton Mifflin, April 2011) is a short chapter book for 2-4 graders. It tells in part of the adventures of Arthur and Camelot and the Knights but with a humorous twist. Sir Gawain learns an important lesson about being too self-absorbed when he rescues a damsel in distress. <10>
I like the idea of kids reading about Arthur and the Knights even in a book that takes some license with the stories. Think of how this book can connect kids to later readings of more classics tellings of the Arthurian legend.
