I walked into my living room this afternoon just before lunch and found RB on the couch reading a book to his sister. He was on the third page and enjoying every minute of his book. After a short time he became tired and brought the book to me to read while they ate. I didn’t mind. After all, RB is only 5. I can’t believe he was reading his first chapter book!!
“What book?” you might ask. Finding books that excite boys can be a challenge.
These: DC Superheros by Capstone Publishers!
There are Batman books in the series as well. RB has been on a Superhero kick recently, so I was excited to find these at the library. The books are on a 4.3 reading level. They are not Christian fiction, but the one we finished reading today had no insulting language, such as name calling, and no real violence. The ice and fire villains did have guns, but each one shot out either ice or fire. But the neat thing was the science topic that was woven into the story. The Flash book we read involved global warming and what would happen if the polar ice caps melted. The Superman one we began today includes geology topics. I am interested to read the others in the series.
And yes!!! I did find a Wonder Woman book in the series!
***I went online and found the publisher’s website! It lists the characters and the books about them. It looks like there are games as well. FUN!! Enjoy!!
