Have you (or your child) read the Mysterious Benedict Society books (Amazon link to an amazing price for all three!)? I read and enjoyed the first two books with Rebecca, and she read the last one on her own.
Last week, I brought home a surprise from work for Rebecca. One of the benefits of working in the book industry is that I have access to advance reading copies, books the publishers send out to generate buzz and interest months before the book is actually published. Sometimes they even have typos, or incomplete illustrations.
But do you see that? Rebecca is thrilled to be reading something four months before anyone else will even have access to it. She even showed her teacher. And now I'm definitely the coolest mom ever. In Rebecca's book, at least.
