Book and Journal Keeper
The Captain is 7 and loves to read. He has really loved discovering the world of chapter books this year! Often times we find him after we thought he was asleep, reading his Star Wars book, the Bible, or a book about animals or the solar system. Reading is such a gift and I am glad that he has found this love and is confident as a reader.
One problem that we have run into, however, is that he has two little brothers that love books, as well, but in different ways! While D is gentle with books and loves sounding out words, Baby Brother is two and very destructive! He loves to look at books, yes, but he also loves to throw them, drop them, and he is learning that we do not rip pages or color in books that are not coloring books. That's a tricky thing for a toddler to learn, isn't it?
