Summer Reading Report for 2011

summer-reading-sidebarI’ve been keeping a list of the books Mason and Mattie have read this summer in our sidebar. Here is the book log for each of them.

Mason has read through 4 and a half Harry Potter novels. He is taking a break from HP at the moment.    Mattison is quickly reading through the animal nonfiction section at our library.  I look forward to seeing what catches their interest next.

  1. Yay for reading! I love seeing the list because right now we're going crazy trying to keep enough books in the house for Makayla - I need all the ideas I can get.

  2. What a great list of books -- I was so excited when my 8 y/o son started devouring the Nancy Drew books (the old ones .. he told me the new ones are awful) ... I'll have to show him this list and see if he's interested in any others.

    Thanks for participating in the Family Celebration by reading and commenting on my post over at Welcome to the Madness -- it's so fun to meet more people this way.

    (And BTW, *love* the title of your blog - makes me smile!)
