Another Book Review

Grandpa T, brought Tanner and Emma some books to read when he was here visiting a couple of weeks ago. Tanner is a funny reader, he’ll read almost anything non-fiction, he loves Mythology, how things work, information about animals etc… and Popular Science is often an object of contention between Tanner and his Dad. I read books with him at night that I think he wouldn’t necessarily read on his own and might be a bit of a challenge for him. He enjoys that I think just because it’s one on one time with me. So we have been reading Island of the Blue Dolphins together the last couple of weeks. Anyway, he picked up The Lightening Thief, that Grandpa brought over, and couldn’t put it down. Walking through grocery stores, riding in the car, preferred it over TV time, in the last two weeks he has devoured all 4 books in the series. When I find a fiction book that captures his attention I feel like I have to share it with the world. He came running into my room when he finished book 4, it was pretty late at night, and I was surprised to see him awake. He was so upset, I guess book 4 isn’t the end, and he’s frustrated because they didn’t finish the story. I’m so glad he found something to read besides Star Wars, and Indiana Jones.
