Did anyone ever read the Aldo series growing up? While it’s not technically old enough to be considered “classic," I thought I’d share something I read as a kid for this week’s #classicchapterbooks. I loved reading Beverly Cleary and when I had gone through all of her books, I scoured the racks at the library for more books about ordinary kids (although Aldo Sossi is a little on the quirky side). I loved realistic fiction and it’s funny, that’s what my daughter is into now, too. So I snagged a copy of this for her, hoping that she’ll take a liking to it as well. Be sure to check out what @the.book.report is sharing this afternoon.
