Colby has started to really enjoy reading chapter books. We read a chapter a night together. At first I was afraid they would not keep his attention, but he is always very excited to find out what is going to happen next.
So far we have read books from the series Magic Tree House and Geronimo Stilton. Right now we are reading Geronimo Stilton’s It’s Halloween, You ‘Fraidy Mouse! Someone suggested we try the Moongobble series next.
I have to say, I have been enjoying reading these types of books more than Colby’s picture books. They keep me interested and are bringing me back to my Babysitter’s Club and Sweet Valley High days.
Colby also likes to listen to stories being read on CD on his way to school in the morning. Hopefully all this will help him grow up enjoying books as much as Jay and I do.
