T-man has been a good (but not overly enthusiastic) reader for a while now. Granted, I have a bias toward fiction, but I couldn’t seem to find something that would grab him. So a few months ago I handed him a Harry Potter, talked up how much BS & I loved this series, & grabbed a few times when we could curl up with it & read together.
Next thing I know, “everyone” in his class is reading this series & they’re all totally into it. Last night he popped back out of his room to tell me he knows who Tom Riddle is (no spoilers here!).
And this morning he comes into the kitchen and announced, “I need the next book, mom!” Score!!!
