My 11 yos
(Kingston Springs, TN)
It seems that it took me forever to get my 11 yos to read a book without pictures. I sort of bribed him. I told him he had to read two novels without pictures and I would get him his Ripstick. My husband suggested Summer of the Monkeys. My son absolutely loved the book. He would give us a play by play of it. There is also a movie too, but he has not seen that yet, but now he wants to.
He has also read a book called Darkside, and he just finished Ever.
I am so proud of him for reading these novels.
