Summer is winding down, my kids go back to school in 2 weeks (I’m torn between cheering and booing) and I know others have already started the new school year.
Having completed and turned in his summer reading log, I was afraid my 9 year old would slow down on his reading, but thanks to some great books from the library, including his prize for completing the reading log, that hasn’t happened. The 5 year old is firmly in a Magic Treehouse (“Jack and Annie” as they’re called in my house) phase and has been eschewing all others for the next book, though we also need to get back to having him read some easy readers. Click on over to my (Nancy’s) blog, linked below, to read more about what they’ve been devouring.

I didn’t write up a post for this topic this month because it has been hard to get my kids (teens) to sit still and read. They started school this week and they were just not in the mood to pick up a book (sort of depression I believe). Our middle daughter is happy that in her High School English II honors class she will get to read a few classics this year. Our son on the other hand is still trying to get through Eight Cousins by Louisa May Alcott. He isn’t caring for it very much! With school back in session maybe next month I can share with you what they have been reading for school.
