I walked through the living room yesterday and stopped short. My 10 year old, Jeremiah, was sitting in a chair reading. He wasn't reading for school. He was reading because HE WANTED TO.
What! Are you kidding me?!
I've had many girl readers. They read all the series...Baby-sitters Club, Judy B. Jones, Hunger Games and the latest being the Divergent books. They read when they should be doing chores and when they should be sleeping. I get that...me too.
But a boy that reads for pleasure??? My heart is racing. Can it really be? Okay, it is a Diary of a Wimpy Kid book - but nobody told him he had to.
There is hope for the male Aclys.
