Great Books

I am a happy book lover. I love to read, to peruse, to scan, and to enjoy. My husband is even more of a book lover and we have turned our two kids into book lovers too.

The latest book Katie and I finished reading was My Father's Dragon.

The book is enormously entertaining, and would be great for little boys. Better yet, it is a great first chapter book. The chapters are short and full of adventure. During the crocodile chapter, Katie yelled out, "Oh NO!". I thought something was wrong. She was just yelling to the book it turns out. She was so into it that she was worried about the Elmer being attacked by crocodiles.

If you haven't read a good book to your little ones in a while, this is a great one.

Oh my goodness! We LOVE that book! It's one that I used to read when I was a little girl, and it was the first chapter book that I ever read aloud to my son. We've since read it two more times, and now my daughter enjoys it, too. (We've also read the sequel, "Elmer and the Dragon".)

It made me so happy to see this post this morning--thank you!

I bought both sequels this past weekend. I found them both at my favorite bookstore, Halfprice. Can't wait to read them with my daughter, mainly because I can't wait to see what happens next!
