Can’t Get Enough Of Stink And Henry

Chapter books have been a big hit this summer vacation.

A. has read a series of stories about Stink Moody, and now he’s moved on to Horrid Henry tales.

Both sets of books are smart and funny, and we’re glad to have something around that keeps A. excited about reading as second grade looms.

Megan McDonald, who lives in Sebastopol, does a great job weaving in lessons. In “Stink and the Incredible Super-Galactic Jawbreaker,” there’s a focus on idioms.

A. is now really enjoying Francesca Simon’s “Horrid Henry and the Soccer Fiend,” and he was tickled by what Henry did to his brother’s diary. He likes this book so much he even asked to take it to bed to read before going to sleep. We can’t ask for anything better.

My wife, L., is really the mastermind behind getting A. to read over the break. But she says it’s been tough to find good chapter books geared for boys.

Anyone out there have any other recommendations?
