It probably comes as no surprise, then, that he's not a big fan of reading. It's a concept that I have a hard time fathoming.
It broke my heart when he was little and wasn't interested in me reading him bedtime stories. He didn't even want to sit still long enough for that. I'd come in with a stack of books, and he'd shake his head. It was such a shock since his older sister was a "just one more" pro. Five or more books a night was the norm.
I'm telling you about this just to say that I am so thankful for books that make him sit up and take notice. Friday he started The Percy Jackson Series and has been completely hooked. He started book 3 this morning. To me that's HUGE! Thanks to Rick Riordan and all the writers out there like him who are writing engrossing things for our boys to read. You are a wonder.
Now that I see it's possible for him to choose reading over everything else, I'm on a mission to find other books that will keep him engaged. Suggestions are always appreciated.
