FINALLY my 7 year old wants to read!
on February 29, 2012
I saw this in the store and thought my son *might* be interested in this wacky book. I brought it home and read him a few pages and asked him to take it from there. He didn't want to because he NEVER wants to read. I told him that was fine but I wasn't going to read it to him and that he had to do it himself if he wanted to see what happens next. He waited until he knew I was serious and then he dug in. He absolutely never reads out loud without complaining and it was amazing to watch. He started very slowly and gained confidence and speed as he realized this was a big looking book but HE could read it without help. It was so good for his confidence that he wanted to read it to his sister once he finished the book. I had to go right out and buy the next in the series right away. He even sat down and started drawing and writing his own book inspired by this one. I can't say enough about this book!!
