What the Bakers Are Reading

Kelsea: Further Chronicles of Avonlea by Lucy Maud Montgomery

Ishmael: Encyclopedia Brown Boy Detective by Donald J. Sobol (he just discovered that this is book 1 in a series. He can't WAIT to get more from the library)

Joshua: Tom Sawyer Abroad by Mark Twain. This book was recently given to us as part of a set or Companion Books. The boys think these are the coolest books ever. You flip the book upside down and start a new story from the other end. lol He's almost half way through this story already. I was a little concerned about the slang and southern dialect messing him up. He seems to be doing fine. This book has gone everywhere with him.

Jeremiah: Danny and the Dinosaur by Syd Hoff. Jeremiah has been my latest bloomer when it comes to reading. Last night he wanted a book to take to bed just like his brothers. One that he could read all by himself. Mostly he's just been reading his lessons. So I pulled off Danny and the Dinosaur and told him he could read it all by himself. He was very skeptical. But he opened the book beside me and started to read. You should have seen the look of surprise on his face when he read the first page with no help whatsoever from his mother. Oh, I am just so excited for him.
