My 8-year old's reading catalyst
Although very bright, my 8-year old daughter read only when instructed to do so and for the exact minimum time. she read book 3 first due to her interest in paris and is very much interested in completing the series. she read this second, then book 1...all within 10 days. she reads on the drive to school and during recess and lunch. she asked for a book light so she could read in the car on evenings. couldn't find 2, 8 & 9 here so i ordered online from amazon. i got her to underline words she did not know... she's matching the cover colour with the colour pencil. so we discuss the pronunciation and meaning. she also summarizes the stories verbally for me. wished it sold as set/sets. but still reasonably priced. so we have 1-9. got 1-3 "race the wild".... both educational books for children with international span. looking into "critters club" as she loves animals. don't want to be without the next read.
