lighthouseacademy Posted August 5, 2008 Share Posted August 5, 2008 My son seems to be very picky. He is into space and the human body right now. He read a little of Paddington but wasn't that interested. He loved the Cricket in Time Square (I read it) but I couldn't get him into The Whipping Boy (I don't know why). He read Henry Huggins to himself and loved it as well as all the other Henry books. He is 1/2 through Ramona Age 8 but it is not really as exciting to him. He loved Fantastic Mr. Fox and Read all of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory yesterday. He has read most of Frindle but it hasn't been that exciting to him, although he loves the idea of Frindle just not the writing (which quite frankly I considered it rather dry and wordy and rambling and not particularly well written). He was in and out of enjoying listening to me read The Indian in the Cupboard. I tried to get him to read The Courage of Sarah Noble- no go. He liked one of the Ralph Mouse books (can't remember which one) and devoured it but hasn't been into the others. He of course likes Magic School Bus (I think they are a bit beneath his abilities though and the writing isn't that great) and Magic Treehouse a few months ago. What do I check out for this monkey to read! One of my biggest problems is balancing age 6 interests with higher reading levels. He is also one who does not want to be particularly challenged so it needs to seem easy even if it is stretching him just a little. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
