Living with a reader is pretty cool. Cool because he can learn anything he wants and follow his interests wherever they lead. And cool because I get to read, too.
Anders and I pedaled down to the park last weekend (it’s also cool living with a two-wheeling phenom) for a reading picnic. Anders packed a bag of books. He claims there were 78, but I think it was closer to 12. I packed one book. We brought food and a blanket, then parked in the shade and read under the trees.
Here’s some of the books Anders is reading (I won’t list all 78):
Buck Wilder’s Small Twig Hiking & Camping Guide: A Complete
Introduction to the World of Hiking & Camping for Small Twigs of
All Ages by Tim Smith
I Am Learning All the Time by Rain Perry Fordyce
The Magical Garden of Claude Monet (Anholt’s Artists) by Laurence Anholt
(Thanks to my mom for sending those last two!)
Big Tracks, Little Tracks: Following Animal Prints (Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out Science, Stage 1) by Millicent E. Selsam
I’m head-deep in Nevada Barr murder mysteries right now. It’s summer, I don’t want to think too much…and I love that her lead character is a park ranger. And her descriptions of the National Parks where the stories take place are great. And I like to try to figure out whodunnit, of course. The one I was reading on this day took place in a cave, so that’s a bonus.
Blind Descent (An Anna Pigeon Novel) by Nevada Barr
What are you reading this summer?

Though not a two-wheeling phenom, the big explorer does love to read. He’s especially fond of the Magic Treehouse series & the Magic Schoolbus series. Together, we’re currently reading Little House in the Big Woods. And he loves it!
We really like the Magic Schoolbus, too, but I haven’t checked out the Magic Treehouse–I’ll have to look into that. And I’ve been meaning to start a “big” book together. While I usually use the time he is reading to dive into my own book 😉 I love reading together, too.
