This month was better for meeting with my reading buddy – we only had one week off: his school vacation week. Which happened to be the same week of the bombings at the Boston Marathon. Thankfully, all of our schools were on vacation that week, so that was one less worry for people (think about it: schools would have had to go into lock-down – scaring both the children and their parents – or they would have had to evacuate which could have caused more panic, too).
Anyway, we’re almost done with Zac Power #3, probably have about 10 or so pages left to read. A. seems to really enjoy the books, which is good, since I think these are much more appropriate than the scary books (I think you all know how I feel about those by now, yes?). The program coordinator found book #4, so I think we’ll have enough time to finish that to wrap up the year together.
We only have 3 weeks left and then an end-of-year celebration, so I’ll only see him 4 more times until next fall when the program starts again. I need to figure out what book to get him as the end-of-year gift… any suggestions?
