This week we have some cuties reading by themselves, with their older brother, with friends on a play date (most unusual for these sporty boys to be reading and not whacking balls around), and yours truly reading with my youngest when he was Star of the Week. Enjoy!
I guess I am a children’s book award junkie. I really love all short lists for awards even more so than the actual award recipient. There is just something so exciting about a short list; anyone can be the winner. This genre: non fiction for young adult is not where I am reading ahead of my eldest yet as she is just eleven, but I am excited to learn about this award and I’m pretty sure that it will fit the bill for one of my kids in the future.
Thank you for sending in photos GeekMom , Mama and the Boys, and There’s a Book. I can’t do this weekly Monday feature with your help, so please keep the photos coming.
In the case of Nancy Yi Fan, it’s clear she was born with a special gift. My 10-year-old, nearly 11-year-old brought home this book for me to blog on. (At the same age, Nancy had banged out a draft of this book and was sending it in to publishers!).
Gifts for kids around $20.
