What a delightful story that takes place in Scotland. We all took the week to explore some fun topics with this story. In the book, a young man must decide if he is going to live in the highlands or the lowlands. He learns things while living with his relatives in each place and the ending is a great one involving a bagpipe. I won't share more as I don't want to spoil it.
Our FIAR group chose this book for our annual Family Event this year (so yes, there will be another post to follow soon on this event). In order to get into the mood of the day, we made/found costumes. I made these kilts for the boys. They were very easy and I thought that they looked great.
Daniel was so taken with this story. He loves making sure that we reenact as many of the details as possible. He wanted to make a bagpipe. Well, I think he initially wanted me to make a bagpipe, but I told him that I couldn't. He improvised and came up with his own version using the various "pipes" and flutes that we have attached to a large baggie. Very creative, isn't it?
