Quality reading time.


"We are going to read a chapter book"
"What's a chapter book?"
"When you get older books are bigger, so they break them up into sections and call those sections chapters."

Then we started to read "Dinosaurs before Dark". You can read Jonas's telling of the story at The Corn Was Good.

It was great we read two chapters a night, and Jonas read some each day. It always changed. He would read the first line on each page one night, then the first two lines on each page. Only 5 days later we finished the book and remembered everything that happened in the story when he retold it.

We bought some Magic Treehouse books for him for Christmas, and are now reading two chapters a day at least. I think we'll need more books soon.
