My son is officially reading!! It took a long time, this one, lol.

He still isn't confident, so if it has more than ten words to a page, he won't even try. :/. So I thought I'd ask and see if there are any deals on beginning reader books for boys out there.

My nephew is at just that point in his reading! It's so fun to watch, isn't it?

Thanks! I'll look in a minute, nursing the baby now.


It is great! My daughter breezed through reading lessons, but this time it was tough. I'm so proud of him!

Sounds just like my nephew.  He loves books, but lacks confidence, I think.  I've been trying to find books he might get excited about, thinking that my sister can use them to work with him.  I suggested to her, and will to you also, to see if your local library has a program where kids read to certified therapy dogs.  Our local one is called "Paws to Read."  These programs can build confidence and help make huge improvements in reading; I've heard of kids jumping a couple grades in reading levels.  The atmosphere is relaxed, because, hey, dogs don't care if you read well or not; they just want to lie next to you and listen.  :)
