October 2010 Chapter Book Read Aloud Challenge

Welcome to the first monthly chapter book read aloud challenge. You'll find a description of the challenge here.
I'm reading The Stupendous Dodgeball Fiasco by Janice Repka this month. The main character is an eleven year old boy who has been raised in a circus with his parents. He moves in with his aunt and uncle to live the life of a "regular" kid. My goal is to have lots of sharing of our thinking during reading this book with my three children ages 7, 7, and 9. You'll find resources to help create sharing in the description of this challenge.

Please join me and add the title of the book you'll be reading this month in a comment. Look for highlights from our experience with our book in a post on October 31st.
