This year a retired teacher decided to start a non-profit to get kids reading. Each day a book is sent home with every kid in 2nd grade. The kid has to read it, answer questions about the reading, the parent signs that the kid read the book. The kid marks if the book was too hard, just right, or too easy. Isaak knows that this is something he has to do. He's been very good about doing it.
I was on the library's website and Isaak said, "Mom I have that book in my classroom. I've read some of it. It's a chapter book." I put it on hold, along with another book in the series. Marvin Redpost is the series. This proves that everyone has different taste; Mica said, "I tried reading those books, and could not get into them." Isaak couldn't get into the Magic Tree House series that Mica loved so much. Maybe Isaak will give the series a shot when he gets more confident in his reading.
Here he was on Saturday morning:

What book series got you into reading? American Girls started when I was a kid. I got into them big time. Now they are so very commercial, which makes me a little sad.
