Geronimo Stilton

Ds's latest obsession is Geronimo Stilton. We got one from Scholastic yesterday. He read the entire thing. I found another one for him this morning--he was done by 10:30am.

This from the kid who, about a year ago, was barely reading! Woot woot!

I've been trying to get my son interested in Geronimo Stilton for ages now. There are so many of them at the library, it would be great! He is more interested in BeastQuest and the graphic novel series called Bone.

Maybe I'll just pick one of the Geronimo Stilton's to read aloud. That might do it.

I don't know what your son is like in terms of "typical patterns," if you will, but mine has always very clearly had his own timeline. I tried getting him interested in them last school year--no interest whatsoever. Then all of a sudden, one comes in Scholastic this year and BAM, he's hooked. He took 6 out from the library this week and had read 2 or 3 of them by the next day. lol. In terms of improving his reading, they're not really challenging enough, but he's loving the story lines and *I'm* happy to see him reading something other than Calvin and Hobbes--maybe he'll start using lowercase letters in his writing now. LOL
