{Book Advice?}

I have kind-of been like a duck out of water today. Typically every Monday I have Staff Meeting at church, but not today. I didnt know what to do with myself?!?
I just did a little of this and that.

We went to the library and registered for "Be Creative".

Lily - excited

Carson - pulling books off the shelf faster than I can pick up

Clayton - mortified at the thought of attending Story Hour or Craft Day

SOOOO . . .I figure it will go something like this:

Lily-She will gladly read the 5 + required books and beg for more. She will attend Story Hour and Craft Day.

Carson-He will be the kid they hate to see coming. And if Mr. Hobbs is around he will keep him on Library Days.

Clayton-I will have to prod him along like a donkey carrying a heavy load. He might meet the required 5 but will speed read just to half-way accomplish the task. He will not attend Story Hour or Crafts unless he gets busted by Mrs. Baker and she insist he stay.

I will be sure to let you know if I have the situation pegged. . . and I could be wrong, but I doubt it.

Talk Later.



P.S. Does anyone have any suggestions for some WONDERFUL books for boys age 8/9? I need some REAL attention grabbers. Good stuff. Classics. Something full of goodness? I am looking for something so good he cant put it down . . .

I appreciate any efforts to draw attention to reading, and attract reluctant readers to it.

That's because I grew up as a reluctant reader, in spite of the fact that my father published over 70 books. Now I write action-adventures & mysteries, especially for tween boys, that avid boy readers and girls enjoy just as much.

My blog, Books for Boys recently reached # 1 on Google.

Keep up your good work concerning reading.
