Oh, the Places You'll Go!
Elizabeth has been burning through the books this summer. Her reading has just recently gotten to the place that it's becoming more effortless so she's enjoying it more. She mentioned to me the other day that she really likes reading more now, like she was surprised that reading was becoming more enjoyable and less perfunctory. We've really been hitting the library hard this summer since both she and Paulie have been enjoying easy readers that only take 1-2 days each to complete. Elizabeth's favorites have been Junie B Jones and Magic Tree House. We, unfortunately, have read most of the Junie B Jones books together, but she's just getting started on the Magic Tree House and has already travelled, via literature and imagination, to space, the wide seas, Japan, Vesuvius, Egypt, England in the Middle Ages, and the Amazon.
