We went to the library last week....
Jam ran off by himself to find 'Inkheart' (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inkheart) - but that's a different story!!
Boo wanted help choosing a new chapter book....
Anyway so here's how it went...
Mom " Why don't we try 'The Boxcar Children' series."
Boo "Boxcar children .. sounds weird!"
Mom "I'll order the first one and you can try it."
Boo " But Mom, what's it about!"
Mom " Just wait and read it"
.... Fast Forward 4 days ....(waiting for book and finishing current book)
Boo "Mom 'The Boxcar Children' is AWESOME!"
Phew!! I have just gone up a few pegs in the ability to recommend books!!! YEAH!!!
Here's a link to the series list on wikipedia just in case anyone else has a 8 year old they want to keep reading this summer!!
Have a great day!!! Read a Book!!!
(no one paid me for this review - it was just the honest opinion of my 8 year old DD)
