Every Monday is library day in our house. After school the kidlets go to our local library and they each get to pick out four to five books for the week. I never know what kind of books they’ll check out. To me, there never seems to be any rhyme or reason to their selects. When I ask them they just tell me that from the cover it “looks” like it would be a good read (note to authors/illustrators – cover art is SUPER important in selling your book to the 10 and under crowd!).
Even though my six-year-old can read on his own, he likes to check out chapter books that The Hubs and I can read to him before he goes to bed each night. Captain Underpants, Batman and The Notebook of Doom series are some of his favs, but I’m starting to have trouble mustering up the vigor to re-read, for the millionth time, the adventures of George Beard and Harold Hutchins as they battle the Turbo Toilet 2000!
