Treasure Trove

Tuesday, July 27, 2010

Today, I exchanged some of the books on our shelf in the trailer that we won't need this upcoming winter for ones that will be useful for school, and also that are at Jude's reading level. He was very excited, because we did not have many chapter books in the house, and he has definitely moved past the level of a short picture book.

Two shelves of reading bliss for the voracious reader.

He was especially excited about the Chronicles of Narnia, Mary Poppins, Pirates of the Carribean and the Hardy Boys books. (Some of these he has read already: James and the Giant Peach, The Fantastic Mr. Fox, and Charlotte's Web. We did The BFG and Stuart Little as family reading.)

Not everything on these shelves is age-appropriate yet (Great Expectations, anyone?), but a lot of it will be just fine.

Of course, since I happened to find a Calvin and Hobbes book while I was digging around, guess which one the boys chose first?

Not that it matters. Reading is for having adventures, and Calvin will take him on just as many as Roald Dahl!

Have fun, wherever your adventures take you, my boys!

  1. Love it! Did Noah create his own little bead chain that I can see in the picture or did Mom make that one.

  2. Mommy made that one for him. He wanted it, chose the colours, and approved the design, but didn't want to do the detail work himself. Fine motor skills are not his strong point.

  3. Ohhh!

    Books, books, BOOKS!!

    How exciting! I remember at that age not being able to wait to dive into a new book ~ usually I had 4 or 5 on the go at the same time.

    These days there's a lot less reading time to be had.

  4. Vix - I was the same way. And now I'm also the same way! I just read Persuasion over the long weekend--YAY! A little bit of fiction.

    But I already knew that you were like that, too! :-D Us bookworms need to stick together!
