It's definitely nice to see the weather warm up and be able to sit outside and enjoy a nice book. My son Andrew, who is 10, will be out of school next week and he is looking forward to summer vacation. He has a science camp, a theater camp, and swimming lessons all lined up. He's even going to volunteer as a helper at the summer library reading program which he has atteneded for the past 5 years. I just have to get used to having a little less time to myself! We're going to work on some fun workbooks to keep him on track with school and make a list of books to read. I'm encouraging him to use a book journal to write down a few sentences about what he liked and didn't like about the book and a brief synopsis. Hopefully, he will write a few book reviews here on my blog as well.
I read about Teen blips on Cindy's love of books blog. I was curious and was glad that I got a chance to check it out. There is a list of 325 blogs and I went to check out the list not expecting my blog to be listed. I was shocked to see it listed at #67! I'm not sure how it got on the list and there are many other blogs that I recognized so you should check it out to see if your blog is listed there. The site appears to have a lot of information teens would be interested in including this list of blogs. Has anyone heard about this site?
