Family Read-alouds: Ransom of Red Chief

OK, I don't know if you know this yet but my almost-5 year old son, Bam-Bam, definitely takes after his nickname-sake. He's just a bull in a china shop -- never walks when he can run, never stays on the ground when he can climb. He's what you'd call a handful .... but more especially, what you'd call ALL BOY! Many people have mentioned, after having been around the little guy for any length of time, that the O.Henry story, Ransom of Red Chief, would be a quite appropriate analogy for my little boy.

Thanks to Linda over at Higher Up and Further In, I not only have a link to the story as written by the short-story master, O. Henry; I also now have a link to other wonderful classic short stories that will surely brighten our autumn/winter/spring reading evenings.

I love when the internet pulls through for us!
