Lu's already finished up my entire reading list for this year, and several more books. Most of them have been 200+ pages, at about one every 2-3 weeks. Lu is passionate about reading, and that is something I want to nurture and support. It started feeling like he wasn't quite lighting-up as much with the last couple of books, and I was getting the sense that maybe he needed a break from the longer chapter books. We do short stories for reading aloud, but nothing in between. So I got some shorter books and he's been reading loads.
One in Spanish -
His first graphic novel -
And the very moving
Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes.
And more bugs!
Look at this two-headed beetle.
Oh no, that's not... Oh!
