We’re reading so many great books this summer! Now that my twin girls (6 years old) are reading on their own; they’re tackling “easy readers” we pick up from the library, and we’re sharing some great read alouds at bedtime. Right now they’re obsessed with Laura, Mary and the whole Ingalls family from the Little House on the Prairie series. They have so many questions about living during that time period, and they’re learning a lot.
My son (age 8 1/2) is finally done with all the Harry Potter books and has moved on to shorter ones; I’m glad, since they were taking months and he wasn’t reading anything else. Now he’s trying a bunch of different authors: sports books by Matt Christopher, the Gregor the Overlander series by Suzanne Collins (author of Hunger Games), and Andrew Clements’ novels like Frindle and The Landry News.
