Now all of a sudden he is reading for his own for pleasure. Not a lot but it is a start. He spent the night with his friend Camo Boy a week or so ago and when it was bed time Camo Boy was reading his book. Biggun asked him to read out loud. (Yes that surprised me too.) Camo Boy went right along and started reading. Biggun got so involved with the book he was listening to he came home and begged me to take him to the library and get the first book in the series. It took all I could do to keep from showing how excited I was over this request. The first chance we got we where at the library.
Oh! This book series is a version of Peter Pan. The first book in the series is Peter Pan and the Starcatchers by David Barry
I sent Biggun to bed last night and I got up to go to the bathroom about 30 minutes later and saw his bedroom light was on. I opened the door ready to get on to him and there he was reading his book, without being asked to read it. (Big smile) Instead of getting on to him I told him to finish the chapter and lights out.
Never thought I would say that. That is a lesson to me never say never! What book is your child reading?
