He got through Esio Trot just about so I fancied something a bit more wordy again. Although he binned off Danny the Champion of the World…
Actually I’m guessing at his age. Is he about five?
I’ll read it and he can pretend to understand it.
Ok. Well you (possibly) know him better than me. Let me know how it goes.
Here’s my tip for the top.
Carry on reading to him long after he can read for himself.
My daughter said a week or so ago that she’s really glad that I continued to read to her way past when her peers’ parents had stopped. I probably read to her till she was about 11. She said it was really comforting and bonding and she’s pleased that I carried on.
