Tim finished fifth grade this year and next school year he will move over to the middle school. This year our school district (where I teach and Tim attends) came out with a summer reading list for Kindergarten through 12th grade. Tim's list is required summer reading. Each of the fifth grade students were given a copy of Island of the Blue Dolphin from the PTA as a kind of "graduation" to the middle school.
Of course Tim was not thrilled to have to read this summer. Is he truly my son?????? He is a good reader too. He just never wants to start a book. When he is done reading, he has enjoyed the book. I told him that I would read with him. So, every couple of days we sit and take turns reading a chapter to each other. We should be done with this book next week.
He has two required books. We will read the next one in August.
I haven't been reading much of my own. I did read
The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner:
An Eclipse Novella
I think I will read The Host next. I have had it since last summer and haven't started it.
