Avery started reading the Wings of Fire series last year because it was in her classroom library. I saw the third book of The Menagerie series (by the same author) at the library a few weeks ago and ordered them for Avery.
She is halfway through the first book and is on track to finish the series by the beginning of September. Her favorite thing about the books? That they are about animals – including mythical and extinct ones. (She wanted me to let you know that there’s a Woolly Mammoth named Captain Fuzzpants).
Kindergarten books. Because, duh (her words). She’s so excited for kindergarten but I don’t think she really gets that she will be in school all day, every day. It won’t be like it was in preschool where she got days off during the week and rest time in class. I’ve been to one of the kindergarten classes at her school and can confirm there is zero time for resting. Those little kids work hard to learn everything they need to learn and they do a great job. On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome snacks and the playground is just a few feet from her classroom door.
She reads the books by describing what’s happening in the pictures. She’s really good at figuring it out!
