2008 Reading for Boo

Boo read fifty-one books in the first six months of 2008. For the second six months he finished 38 books. I'd say 89 books is pretty respectable when you are in 3rd grade. Some books he chose, some I chose and then others we picked out together.

I think if you asked him, Boo would tell you the Sarah, Plain and Tall series by Patricia MacLachlan were his favorites. But, the Poppy series by Avi was great reading too. I found that he consumed non-fiction at least as quickly as the fiction and really enjoyed sharing his newfound knowledge.

Boo, I am very proud of you!
