Reading Fest

Reading Olympics has taken the Bora household by storm. After winning the bronze a few days ago, the boy is on a ‘reading’ rush. The quest for the silver has begun. Yesterday, the equally excited mother rushed to the local library during her lunch hour to get a handful of books. Upon seeing their new collection, the kids whooped! Excitement rushed out in a palpable wave thought their small limbs and bodies. They grabbed their individual sets and pored over them animatedly until dinnertime. Both mother and son managed to squeeze in 4 books before bedtime. The target for silver is 250 minutes of reading. They are now at 140. The boy is certain that he will meet his target by tomorrow. The mother is confident her son will.

The books read so far are:

Fly Guy, Fly High – Tedd Arnold
A Bad Case of Stripes – David Shannon
Cowgirl Kate and Cocoa: Horse in the House –Erica Silverman and Betsy Lewin
The Bones of Fred McFee – By Eve Bunting
Frog and Toad are Friends - Arnold Lobl
Harry in Trouble - Barbara Ann Porte
When Sophie gets Angry:Really, Really Angry - Molly Bang
