Read, Kiddo, Read!

Did you know James Patterson writes young adult books? His Maximum Ride Series is amazing, from what my kids tell me! They flew through all 5 books and will be in line at the bookstore next March to get the next one. It is so cool to hear them discussing the books-- any occasion for them to speak in a civil manner to each other is a joy these days!
Mr. Patterson also has a great website through which he encourages kids to read. It includes book reviews, suggestions, author interviews, and lesson plans. There is even a special section with ideas to get boys to read. This is an awesome site! You HAVE to click here NOW!
