Dinner and a Movie + a Book (Holes)
I have several beloved children's chapter books and Holes, by Louis Sachar, is one of them. This book never fails to blow me away by the incredible plot connections, characters and twists that the story gives the reader. Everything about this book is just so well threaded together! It was always one of my favorite books to teach and I couldn't wait to share it with both the children.
After Harris finished the book, he really wanted to watch the movie which, incredibly, I had never seen! We had a dinner to go along with our family movie night which included homemade canned peaches (Sploosh) on pork tenderloin, a baked onion (from atop "God's thumb"), canned green beans (they only had canned food at "camp") and a cherry cake that we pretended looked like holes dug in a dry lake bed!
