Haven't Seen His Face In Weeks!

Just kidding, but really, his nose is constantly in a book these days. He wakes up in the morning and runs to the book box and starts reading. Or, I'll find him in his room before breakfast reading. He spends all his free time reading and refuses to put his books down unless he is at a good stopping point.

Specifically, all he wants to read is Magic Tree House. A month ago he was mastering Henry and Mudge and other Cynthia Rylant books and then one day he found a Magic Tree House book in the back of my husband's car from the previous owner and read it on the way home. After that, he was comepletely hooked! We've had to make multiple trips to the library to get new books as he reads them very quickly.

He's gotten 8 or 10 of his own MTH books from the thrift store and stores them in numerical order in his trusty backpack that never leaves his side! I'm so glad he loves to read, even if it's only this one series that he is into, but at the same time, it can be frustrating to try and tear him away from his books to join the rest of the world!

Very cool that he's come so far so quickly!

Cul de Sac Kids is a series for young readers with a Christian slant....I'm sure there are others too. Just thought I'd share for the day he runs out of TMT.

Ahhh, yes! Looks like my oldest son. He LOVES MTH - reads them over and over again. He loves reading in general and every time we get home from the Library, I know where to find him for several days! Oh, and he also likes Cul de sac Kids - they are fun books, but MTH is still his favorite!
