Weekend Reading... For Kids!

"Extra Yarn" by Mac Barnett.  Another great kids' read.  This one is sweet, for the very young and upward to anyone who enjoys the reminder that a little beauty and a little effort can make a huge difference, and that there is no price for happiness that comes from within.

I've been focusing a bit more on the kids' reads lately it seems.  My daughter, who's almost 10, is enjoying very large books that I am not familiar with -- Percy Jackson and the Olympians, and other books from the pen of Rick Riordan.  I love discussing books with her, but, seriously, these novels she's reading are epic in size and content, and there is no way I have time to read the way she does.  She also enjoys the Harry Potter series, but our deal is that I will read the books ahead of her (or, re-read them) so that we can discuss them.  So that it what I'm doing with my "spare" time -- re-reading "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" before I give it to her to devour.

So, if you'll excuse me, I've some reading to do...
