What Spawn is Reading This Week

It's been an eclectic week here at the old RR Ranch. ;) This week's books were allover the map:

We started with a classic and an old favorite of mine - Blueberries for Sal. I can still remember my elementary school librarian reading it to us in the tiny school library when I was in second grade.

Blueberries for Sal (Spawn's LA teacher used this as part of a lesson to illustrate the change you need to make to singular words that end in y when adding -ies to make them plural.)

Next is a series that's also an old favorite of mine - The Berenstain Bears. Spawn has a nice little collection of these books because I just can't prevent myself from buying them when I see them. ;) Did you know Jan & Stan Berenstain are from eastern PA? The RR is just a few miles north of their homebase of Bucks County along the Delaware River! Anyway, Spawn requested this one at bedtime this week and I thought it was VERY appropriate. ;) The funny thing is - no matter how many times Spawn asks to read this book to put off bedtime, the lesson just doesn't hit home. ;)

Spawn has been doing a little more independent reading lately, too. He's been opting not to have a bedtime story every night. :( Now he tells me about what he reads over breakfast in the morning when he reads his own bedtime story. =) For those who don't know - Club Penguin is a social networking site for kids ages 5 - 12. A SAFE social networking site. I can set et Spawn's account so he can only use a prest list of phrases in conversation with other penguins - to avoid having him give out ANY identifying personal information. It keeps Club Penguin fun AND safe for him to use.

He's really into Club Penguin's 'Pick Your Path' book series and The Secret Agent Missions on ClubPenguin.com. Lucky for us, they make the Club Penguin Secret Agent Handbook. ;) The 'Pick Your Path' series is wonderful. If you've very read one of the classic 'Choose Your Own Adventure' books, you know exactly what I mean. (Spawn does have some of the original 'Choose Your Own Adeventure' books,too. ;)) Club Penguin has produced several of them and they're wonderful, fun stories to read alone or with a friend or group. And a great value, too - it's the never the same story twice! =D
