my boy has become enthralled with chapter books.
picture books are acceptable from time to time, but if he has his pick it will be a young reader book. the kind that i have 1 small picture and a full page or more of words.
he sometimes gets a little lost if there are many unusual names. and sometimes he asks for us to repeat something, or asks the meaning of a word.
but most of the time, he will sit very quiet and very still, chapter after chapter.
we recently read a youth version of "The Jungle Book"
very different from the disney movie!
now we are on "The White Seal"
not so sure how i feel about that one (it seems to have a bit of an agenda)
next in the book is "Ricky Ticky Tavy"
i wonder if it will be as good as i remember from when i was young?
he's interested and so i'm all over it! we read and read and will continue to read (Lord willing) a lot for many years to come.
any good suggestions for books to read to young boys?
