My new reader is now 7 and a full-fledged passionate fan of the Magic Tree House series. And along with cooler (to some) birthday gifts like a Nintendo DS and a make-your-own-robot kit, he received 7 Magic Tree House books, 2 Magic Tree House non-fiction reader guides, 3 Star Wars books, and a Borders gift card.
He is one happy reading maniac.
And someday, maybe he’ll read books with his mother’s name on the spine. Then I’ll be one happy writing maniac.
