Our reader

When he's not out on the field playing soccer, or in his room playing legos, we're quite likely to see him snuggled up somewhere (on the couch, in his bed, on the floor, or in some chair) like this.

Nose in a book.

He's ripped through all the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books and is moving onto How to Train Your Dragon books.  I don't think he's quite ready for the Harry Potter books, but it won't be long.  What I love about him reading all these books is to see all the drawings that they inspire.  We have lots of dragons and vikings lately.  And always, a vivid imagination in the things he thinks about and tells us about.  What stories!

And, it's quite a miracle to find him still enough, for long enough, to get a picture of him these days.  So, reading is good for that, too.

Any suggestions for good eight year-old books?
