Mica has been reading Captain Underpants.

He got through the series of Captain Underpants books I ordered through Scholastic. I decided to venture out to Target to get a few Magic Tree House books I've been hearing about. They did a segment on Nightline about how much kids love them. We settled on a series of 4. Then I got Isaak a Superman book.

Through some of our Target trip Mica read Isaak the Superman book.

It was hard pushing the cart. I'm certainly NOT complaining. I was happy that they were interested in reading.

In the car Mica started reading the first Magic Tree House books. He got through that pretty fast, too fast. Now it's 3:30 and he finished all 4 of them. They are chapter books. My little first grader is a book worm!

Now if only we could get him this excited and into math. Subtraction isn't his forte.

My kids were lightning fast with books too. It's a wonderful thing.

I'm like your boys with math. UGH!

My oldest likes those Captain Underpants books. I hate them, though. They are filled with obnoxiousness and they were encouraging him to act fresh.

I had a Captain Underpants fan!

They look cute in the cart, and it's awesome that they love reading. :)

We have a bunch of the magic treehouse books, but haven't tried captain underpants. Right now Pierce is into the Humphrey books, which is about a hamster that is the classroom pet.

I used to work in a bookstore and yes, those magic tree house books sure are popular! I remember Goosebumps being another popular series as well, but I think they might veer a little on the scary side.

My son always loved Captain Underpants. I was just happy that he was reading something! We still saved the collection even though he is older now.
