So, the other day, my eight year old was practicing his reading for school. He had to read three books as homework. The catch was, he reads to its and we grade him for the teacher. He did great. As he finished, I told him he was ready for more challenging books. Take any book from the shelves and give it a try. He looked at me like I was crazy.
Tonight, he came down with the Hobbit. I couldn’t be prouder.
