Books of the Week

Here are our favorites from the past week:

Tintin (7 years old)

Sideways Stories from Wayside School
Author/illustrator: Louis Sachar/Julie Brincklow
Reading level: Ages 9-12

Crazy things happen to the kids at this crazy school. Hardly any pictures in this one, but our Tintin is devouring it nonetheless. If you enjoy this one, check out its sequels, Wayside School Gets a Little Stranger and Wayside School Is Falling Down.

The Adventures of Tintin: Red Rackham’s Treasure
Author/illustrator: Hergé
Reading level: Ages 9-12

In yet another exciting Tintin adventure, the boy reporter is hilariously hindered while searching for something. If you like this, you will probably enjoy the rest of the Tintin series.

Johnny Boo (4 years old)

The Cat on the Mat Is Flat
Author/illustrator: Andy Griffiths/Terry Denton
Reading level: Ages 4-8

An easy reader full of funny short stories. After checking this out of the library, Johnny Boo demanded that we buy it. See also The Big Fat Cow That Goes Kapow, by Andy Griffiths.

How Rocket Learned to Read
Author/illustrator: Tad Hills
Reading level: Ages 4-8

Although Johnny Boo already knows how to read, he loves seeing Rocket learn and was hoping there'd be more Rocket books out there for him to read.

    Thanks for joining WMCIR! It's good to meet another early reader :) We almost got How Rocket Learned to Read when we visited the library on Saturday. Perhaps next time.

    I may have to checkout some of the books that your 7 year old is reading, mine is 8 and it's always good to hear of new ones.
