When JT received his report card this week, it came with the 4th grade summer reading list. We're big readers around here, so JT immediately combed his book shelves for the assigned book. The Mouse and the Motorcycle is a pretty good read. And there's no better place to read than the front porch on a summer evening.
Five chapters down.
Update: Jason asked what other books are on the list. Only The Mouse is required. But the recommended list had several books we are eager to try:
My Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George (I'll just go ahead and admit we've already read it)
The Borrowers by Mary Norton (also a book we've read and enjoyed)
Ghost Canoe by Will Hobbs
Baseball Fever by Johanna Hurwitz
Martin Bridge: Ready for Takeoff by Jessica Kerrin
And the Wayside School series by Louis Sachar
That ought to keep Jason busy for a least a week or two.
