Each month Eleanor and I share the chapter books we read. We've been reading chapter books since before Kindergarten and her attention span as a four year old was definitely something to brag about. Eleanor was born a reader and that makes my heart so, so happy.
I am making a couple changes because Eleanor is becoming a more independent reader at home. She has no problem plowing through books at school, but at home she prefers I read to her while she is drawing, painting, working on a science project, etc. Plus, who doesn't also love being read to at bedtime?

*Eleanor has begun reading more than one book at a time. I can't imagine where she got that idea from.
Eleanor's Independent Reads
Do the kiddos in your life have an interest in any of these?
Our reading has slowed a bit for a couple reasons: the first being that we are reading longer books together now, but she is also reading and re-reading longer books on her own. The second is that we are in the midst of dance season and have done four competitions already since February. Two left, one in April and one in May. This kiddo of mine is KILLING it, both in her solo AND group routines. I can't wait to share (if Eleanor wants me to) at the end of the season.
