Mama's Boy

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.

What else is on the ol' fourth-grade list?

Those Wayside books are the best. My kids love them. I loved them as a kid, too. :) Louis Sachar also wrote Holes which is a great book and movie. Because of Winn Dixie is another good one. And Hatchet. Dade loved Hatchet.
