Children that Read
I’m always so pleased when my children are reading, reading, reading. Lately, I’m keeping my eye on my 11 yr old son who has just taken off on novel reading – one after another. Good books, such as those I’ve mentioned in a previous post. The last Hilda van Stockum book he is tackling and enjoying greatly is: The Winged Watchman.
Next, I have the Letzenstein Chronicles lined up for this son. Now that he’s polished off 10 novels in a row, he can certainly enjoy this series into the summer. There is actually four books in the series, but the book provider I linked to, only shows two of them. I was able to locate the other two in the series and being the thrifty book buyer I am – because we buy oodles of literature – I was able to find them at Abebooks.com for ridiculously great prices.
Next our older daughter was needing just a little something special to read into testing times when she goes for her standardized testing in early May with the local home school group. For this I chose another great Bethlehem Book publication: Presenting Miss Jane Austen; just for fun!
Lately, I have had to make children turn out their lights and really go to sleep as I’ve caught them up reading into the early morning hours! This is both good and bad of course. I’d rather catch them doing something such as reading good literature (gasp!) late at night in place of texting, hanging on the laptop or watching the TV – all of which are regulated in this home anyway.
So, got books?!
