Books Wanted

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For the Little One. Just before the holiday season, I got her the The Magic Tree House Boxed Set which bas books 1 - 28.


I asked her to read 1 book a day. They are paperbacks and each book has an average of 60 pages only so it's manageable. Needless to say, she already finished all of the 28 books. I am planning in asking her to re-read them and discuss each with her.

The books are educational. One book is all about thanksgiving and how it all started, one book is about the Civil War while another one is about the Revolutionary War. I believe there are more Magic Tree House books so I've been looking for the best deals on them...in set if possible as they're much cheaper that way.

Anyway, I was asked by Wena what age the little one started reading. I'm not sure what age exactly but I remember taking a picture of her when she finished reading her first 'real book'... Dick & Jane. It was September 8, 2005 so she was a little over 3 years old when she finished reading that book. Here's that picture.

Here's another picture I snapped in January 2006. The books were 'hand me downs' given to her by the husband's friend. As soon as she got her hands on them, she started taking out the ones that caught her interest.

WOW! 28 books and she finished them all? Galing naman!

It's really good for our kids to show interest and love books at an early age. I remember, Dana started reading books to Daniel when he was only 6 weeks old.

Anyway, maginaw pa ba dyan? It's still so cold out here in GA. There were snowflakes last night.
Hope you have a fun filled day Mommy J.

Hello Mommy J. Thanks for stopping by. Yeah I wish to have botanical garden in my backyard too but that is not going to happen. Just my wishful thinking! Wow ang galing naman sa sa little one mo! Kumusta na? tagal kona rin hindi nakabalik didto.

wow! I admire her for her love of books! wish all children can be like that, kasi now a days lahat ng kids glued sa TV at sa computers either surfing or playing games, they don't love books na.

She must have been trained by a very good mom!

that's really cool for your kid to finish the book by herself. No wonder, she's very smart:)

I remember tuloy my daughter when she was that young. She started reading early too. You can't stop her from reading books. Just like your Erica now. Nakakatuwa!

Hope you're having a nice weekend, J!
