Now, if we can just convince the kids of that.
How do we get kids to put down their soakers long enough to crack a book?
First things first, we need titles that are fun, quick to read and if your kids are like ours, summery.
Our boys want books about stuff that happens when it's warm (or that they could imagine doing right now).
And, above all, they want books that are far off the topic of school. No workbooks, please.
For this year's list, I've selected books that are so good they're distracting and a few that even sneak in a lesson or two.
