My reading dislinking little girl LOVED these books, but they did not make her into a reader.

Junie B Jones books

My “I don’t read” twenty-something little girl devoured this book, but it did not make her into a reader.

Bond Girl: A Novel by Erin Duffy

My too active for reading little boy, who wanted a skateboard more than he wanted almost anything else, read this one more than once. Tony Hawk: The Autobiography.   (Note: This is a middle grades book.)

That same restless little boy brought this home from school and insisted that his Junie B Jones-obsessed sister read it. Findle by Andrew Clements

When my little boy became an angry teen this book as a Christmas presnent met with his full approval. Pages from it adorned his room for years. He read every word–too much for my liking aloud. The Way I Am by Eminem.

I do not like Sci-Fi, but I loved this book when I read it as an adult. Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle.

“I only read comics.”

“Libraries are boring–and I don’t read.”

“Fantasy? No way!”

  1. Nice picks! My kids loved FRINDLE and Junie B. Jones as well. I actually have a hilarious picture of my daughter when she was younger at a Barbara Park signing where she’s talking Park’s ear off and the author is very patiently (and amusedly) listening to her chatter. I think Park understands kids pretty well 🙂

    Happy TTT!
