I heard that Audrey over at the The Ten Boom Institute is hosting a discussion of the book The Adventures of Pinocchio for September. On the way home from our trip to southern Utah this past Sunday I read the abridged version of it to my little boy in the car. It has so many gospel teachings in it! This reading reminded me of reading the complete version to my two oldest children over 10 years ago. It is such a great story about character, the plan of salvation, and what it means to be real, human, and good.
So I decided it was time to read it to the younger kids. I’ve been reading it out loud to my 7 and 9 year olds while they do the breakfast dishes.You can find free audio recordings of each chapter here.
I want to join Audrey when she discusses it on Tues. Sept. 10th. Who wants to join us?
Here is the call-in information:
Dial: 661-673-8600 access code 373301#. All calls are at 7:30 MST/8:30 CST.
Here is how you can prepare for the discussion, copied from Audrey’s web site:
Here are some ways you can prepare for a great discussion! Choose one more of the following exercises to practice as you read and bring your notes to our over-the-phone book discussion:
1- Look up information on the author and the origin of the book. Write notes in your book.
2- Track themes in your book. When you notice a recurrent theme, write it in the back of your book and put a page number next to it each time it comes up.
3- Join our email list at The Ten Boom Institute and get the free article “From Opinions to Principles.” Read it and begin searching for principles in your reading.
4- Practice writing at least one of each of the 5 types of questions taught in the “From Opinions to Principles” article. Bring your questions to the discussion.
Here are Audrey and some of her cute kids sharing about the book:
