Read, Read, Read

Hudson is a fairly good reader, but tends toward math and science as his strengths.  Awhile back he wasn’t having the chapter books so I bribed him with $1 for any chapter book he wanted to read.  Somehow he took that to mean him attempting to collect payment on every chapter book he ever reads.  He has since been pounding through my bookshelves averaging about a chapter book a night with a side order of 5-10 picture books.  Boy, my wallet seems to be getting forced into a nightly dollar diet.

He actually informed me a few nights ago that I don’t own enough books. The exact words were, “Can you bring me a new pile of books?  You keep bringing me these books that I have already read.  Why can’t you just buy more?”  What?!  I own over 1,000 children’s books.  Regardless, he is finally starting to enjoy reading and I am merciless when it comes to the end of the book quizzing.  I want to know that he really knows the book well and remembers.  And let’s face it, I’m not running a free money stand.  The above is how I found him asleep after a few hours of reading.
