We just finished reading A Rode a Horse of Milk White Jade and I have to say Mongolia sounds harsh and fun!!!
When I say "we read" its a read aloud. I do the reading to my kiddos ages 15, 12, 9 and 5. This is such a great time to be with each other. My older children have more outside activities and so reading a loud with all 4 of them present was not as easy as it used to be. Sometimes there are a ton of interruptions which could result in a project that is somewhat related to what we are reading, field trip, film viewing etc.
Here's a video I found about Mongolia. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
