My Side of the Mountain

Mar 29, 2007

My son read the book my side of the mountain today.  I remember reading the same book when I was in fifth grade and my son is only in third grade.

He sat down and read the entire book in one sitting this afternoon while he stayed home from school because he was sick with the flu.  I am definitely not a fan of the pressure that schools put kids under these days for number reasons however I am very impressed with the amount of reading he has accomplished over the last year.

When I was in third grade I took almost the entire winter to read "Little House on the Prairie."  It was the first novel I ever read.  I was in a very big fan of the book nor of the TV show especially, however I stuck with the book and read it all the way through.  After that I found many other books that were much more my style and read the moderator basis and say a major book worm, I read several books a week to collect too many books and I really can't put the book down.

However my son has a major head start on the place where I was book reader.  I suspect that that's going to help them out significantly as my ability to read lots of books has always been one of my greatest talents and assets for that matter.  I can only imagine how much this will help him as he seems to be about two years ahead of where I was at the same age.
