Robert got books on different battles. He loves to read stuff like that and he also loves old guns. He found a book full of information on military guns from the older days. He also found a book on starting your own lawn care business. He has been mowing yards the last couple of years for money and has decided he might want to start his own lawn care business. I think it is a great idea, but I asked him to study up on first before he jumped in with both barrels.
Kayla loves books on rocks and minerals, plus she is wanting to learn morse code so she racked up on those kind of books. We also found out we have a humming bird, so we got a couple of bird books to see what we can do about feeding it. The Almanac book is the neatest. Lots of cool information in that book!
We found these books for school. Since we are studying Ancient Egypt right now, I am looking for anything to do with that and some hands on Biology stuff.
This is the book that I chose for myself, so that I can read up on my very spoiled chihuahua. He is a mess.
Try taking your kids to the library sometime just to let them choose books that they like--not anything that is scheduled, but just books that peak their interest. It will cause the reader in them to begin to flourish.
