Andrew has discovered Nate the Great books. We are really encouraging him to read challenging and longer stuff these days. He is a very good reader but it often a bit lazy when it comes to length.
He is at a major transition point between picture books and chapter books. He is learning to see the pictures in his mind rather than have them on the page. It is forcing him to use his imagination more and more. It is a good thing but it is difficult to get him into a new series. Once Andrew has read a book in the series it is fine. He has a frame of reference but trying to get him to try something new is tough. Just part of his personality though.
Right now Andrew has read all of the Frog and Toad books and all of the Poppleton books. Both series are quite cute. I am going to try and rope him into Henry and Mudge next. This summer will be full of reading! Got to keep that brain chugging along!
