bookworm

So as I said before I am watching these kids and sometimes I find myself bored. Like when they watch the same spongebob show for the millionth time. (I am doing better about not letting them watch tv...playing is so much more like real life)

Well I read. I have averaged a book a day. Just like 200 page chapter books for elementary school kids.
  • Tuck Everlasting
  • The Black Cauldron
  • Stargirl
  • Frindle
  • Skinnybones
  • Wait Till Helen Comes

K Stargirl is officially my favorite book other than harry potter books. It is amazing. This girl is absolutely everything I want to be - she only cares about others and she is crazy and totally herself no matter what.

Frindle and Skinnybones make me laugh out loud.

Wait Till Helen made me really scared. That author just sets this spooky mood that freaks you out. and it's a kids book!

All I'm sayin is that if you have nothing better to do and you are watching tv, which is so dumb, you should just read some of these books.

I hear ya, although now days I spend most of the kids tv time passed out on the couch. I like reading while I'm watching the kids play outside too.

Hallie!! Wait till Helen comes was my absolute favorite book in 4th grade. Good times! And I LOVED Stargirl too.
You need to read:
