Book #12 Pandora’s Box by Nathaniel Hawthorne

You know Nathaniel Hawthorne from his more popular works The Scarlet Letter and The House of Seven Gables. But what you might not know about him is that he wrote several books for children. We chose Pandora’s Box as our latest read aloud book, and we really enjoyed his version of this classic Greek myth about how evil was introduced into the world. I purposefully chose this version because I wanted to introduce BittyGirl to the way the English language was spoken in the 1850’s. I was quite surprised that there were only a few instances where I had to stop and explain. It was a lovely retelling of the story.
