WHAT MY KIDS ARE READING
What My Children Are Reading is a meme hosted by The Well Read Child. It’s a terrific idea about sharing what your kids are reading and a great way to get ideas from other bloggers for new books to read with your children. Your posts can be a list of books you’re reading with your kids, books your kids are reading on their own, old favorites that get picked up again and again, summaries of your favorite books you love to read together, books you just started reading with your kids, etc.
#1 son is reading Meet the Aliensons: Freak Street by Knife and Packer. It’s wonderful fun and that’s no less than he would have expected as it was chosen for him by Ruth at The Children’s Bookshop in Beecroft. Ever since I met Ruth at the launch of White Crane and she sent me home with two Beast Quest books as her recommendation, #1 son has regarded her as his personal book buyer. He often says to me “Ask Ruth. She knows what books I like.” She does. And it only underlines the importance of specialist children’s booksellers or sales staff with a background in children’s books. To the buying parent these people are invaluable.
