Today’s post comes from the me that is a mother as well as a writer. The proud book-loving mama.
My older son has become an avid reader in the past year or so. He is currently in the middle of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, which he can barely put down long enough to play Legos or Wii, or go to school. The rest of the family eagerly awaits the completion of this book so we can all watch the movie together.
In case you’re interested in what a 7- (almost eight) year old boy is into reading right now, below is the list of his recent reads.
Alvin Ho: Allergic to Girls, School and Other Scary Things by Lenore Look
The King and the Calico…in Paris by Brooke Rousseau
The Name of this Book is Secret by Pseudonymous Bosch
Diary of a Wimpy Kid series up to #3 by Jeff Kinney
Magic Tree House series up to #41 by Mary Pope Osborne
The Time Warp Trio series up to #8 by Jon Scieszka
Shark vs. Train by Chris Barton
Awaiting his attention are:
If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late by Pseudonymous Bosch
How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell
Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan
I keep a list of books to suggest to him, too (like Pickle Impossible by Eli Stutz, Hereville-How Mirka Got her Sword by Barry Deutsch, The Wee Free Men by Terry Pratchett), for when he runs out of ideas of his own.
What are your kids into?
