Summer reading - Wordless/Wordful Wednesday

I picked up a couple of books for the children yesterday. Andy got some Captain Underpants and Maia some Junie B. Jones books. I was going to grab Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing for Maia, but looked through the book & thought, maybe we'll go with something I know she'll read with ease, first. I know she can read well, but I didn't want to overload her...little did I know.

She likes to read aloud when I'm listening or when no one complains

Maybe I should have gone with some Judy Blume, instead. I'm a sucker for a bargain & the Junie books were buy 2 get one. I brought them home last night around 8:30 & Maia's done with all 3 books! I got the longest stories I could find. I think it took her about 2.5 hours to read all of them (she didn't just sit & read, it was spread out over the course of the day). She's 7. Yay for Maia & I am going to get her Judy Blume next time, for sure. I know she can handle them. I also want to pick up the first Harry Potter because that's the only one we no longer have. I don't know what happened to it, but it's missing. I know she'll enjoy those just as much as I did.

Enjoying a beautiful day out on the deck with a book.

I think she's my only solid "reader like me". I can get caught up in a series & finish them in no time. Just like I did with James Patterson's Women's Murder Club. Andy claims he doesn't like to read and Kyle thinks there are more important things to do besides read. Like play computer games or the PS3.

Mini-me (named for her mama cause she looks just like her) was kinda just wondering what we were doing. She's peekin'.

I just has to see what yous doin'.

Join up for Wordful/Wordless Wednesday!

and then, she {snapped}

My youngest daughter is the only one of my four kids who LOVES to read like I do. She devours books & loves the library. I love it!
I also love the cat pic, so cute!

My daughter is 13 and isn't as much into reading as I am, but now and then a book will catch her fancy - then she will read and read.

Thanks so much for your sweet comment a couple weeks back! I REALLY want to come back and am trying to carve out time. Looks like you have a fast reader on your hands. I am a speed reader too and wish I could go slower to make some books last longer. ;)

I've always been a big reader and I was hoping my daughter would fall in love with it too, but so far it is a no go. She's only six so maybe after first grade when she can read better on her own she will like it more.

My youngest son surprised me in that he is the biggest reader of the family. And here I thought he'd be in jail by now. (that was when he was 13 -- now he's 27.)

Cute photos of your daughter. I hope the reading bug stays with her. :)

My little one is reading as I type this. He gets lost in his books.
And he is not even literate yet. She looks so, so happy with a book. That warms my heart.

I love it when kids catch the reading bug! :)
