Next we played the game of "Authors." It is a card game that plays kind of like 'Go Fish.' There are 13 different Authors. Each of the four cards for a certain author, had a different book or poem on it. You have to collect all four "books" to have that author on your "bookshelf". If a person doesn't have the "book" you asked for, you have to go to the "Library", and pick a "book".
(Sorry if that is kind of confusing, maybe the following pictures will help a little)
The Authors ranged from classic poets like Henry W. Longfellow and Alfred,Lord Tennyson, to fictional writers like Washington Irving and Robert Louis Stevenson. Josiah cleared out the "Library" with a whopping 4 sets to his "bookshelf!"
