Summer (or winter) reading…

Take a look at this evocative article written by Sally for Canada’s The Globe and Mail.

She brings alive the joy of summer-reading and discusses Moomin-creator Tove Jansson’s modern classic, The Summer Book.

Sally also poses the question, “What are you reading this summer?” – has this been a time for reducing those piles of must-read books in your household? And if, instead, you are emerging from winter-time, has there been some opportunity to escape into a good book?

In our family, Little Brother has been as voracious a reader as ever; and it has been a relief to find Older Brother with his nose in a book at every opportunity too. Discovering Anthony Horowitz’ Alex Rider series, as well as various graphic/cartoon books has definitely helped here…

    Evan got introduced to the Alex Rider series earlier this year when he took part in his school’s Battle of the Books contest. His favorite book from the battle was Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life by Wendy Mass. The Alex Rider book Stormbreaker was his 2nd favorite. He says he would definitely recommend Alex Rider to any boys!
