Reading with Little L: Independent Reads

1 03 2018

As Little L has started reading more on his own, he has discovered several series that have appealed to him. Once he finds a series he really likes, he plows through every book in the series!

Like many readers moving into chapter books, one of his first series was Magic Tree House by Mary Pope Osborne.


He has also loved the I Survived series by Lauren Tarshis, which he found in his classroom library.


I read The Wizard of Oz to him a while ago, and when I brought the graphic novels adapted by Eric Shanower and Skottie Young home, he zipped through both sets of them in no time.


His love of Captain Underpants led him to the Dog Man graphic novels, and he’s anxiously awaiting the next book in that series.


He’s a huge fan of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. (Fun fact: a few years ago he saw the first movie on TV and called it “Diarrhea from a Wimpy Kid.” It’s a joke that won’t go away in our house!)


And last but not least, like his father, he loves everything Star Wars, and was so happy to find the Jedi Academy series.
