When I was a kid, one of my favorite authors was Matt Christopher. In case you aren't aware, he was a prolific author of sports novels for kids. And we're doing our best to instill in the kids a love of books. Over the past two weeks Beckett and I read his first chapter book ever, book 1 in the Matt Christopher "Soccer 'Cats" series. I read one page and Beckett read the next. Not bad for a dude in kindergarten.
And I'm not the only one privileged to listen to Beckett. He came home from school today with an award. Yea Beckett for reading to the principal!
