Sox Faux Pax and Help!
I made a SERIOUS blunder in my sox blog... I had given the link for this blog as the sender of my lovely sox. I was WRONG! Ack! I'm so sorry! It should have been THIS BLOG!! Go there now and check it out!!! I'm such a dork... I put the link in for the gal I sent the socks too... nice, eh?
Our weekend with friends was awesome, I will blog about it tomorrow...
...but now I need your help! Awhile back I asked for book suggestions for my 9 year old, Red. And now, with summer fast approaching (we don't get out till June 13th) I am in need once again. He's read all of the Chronicles of Narnia, Aretmis Fowl, FableHaven, Leven Thumps, Eragon, Eldest, Hound of Rowan, Harry Potter 1-5 (he's a pretty sensitive kid... I'm not sure he's ready for 6 and 7 just yet), Peter Pan, Tennis Shoes Among the Nephites, the Samuel books and a few others here and there. These are just the books he's finished this year. Yeah. The kid reads like I do... well, like I do when I have the time!!
We're looking into the Redwall, Guardians of Ga'hoole, Warriors, and Charlie Bones series. Have any of your kids read these? Did they like them? Have you read them? What did you think? Are there any other series that you enjoyed?? It's going to be so hot here (think 120) and he needs something to do! Help!

My oldest read the warrior series and loved it. I loved the Charlie Bone series. Has he read the Peter and the Star Catchers Series, they are by Dave Barry. Plus the Pendragon series is really good too and there is about 10 books in that series. E-mail me if you, or your son wants more details or if you have questions.

Have you heard of the "My mother is a mortician" series. He might like those. hey should be available through Deseret book, or Seagull book.

Seeing as how the only books I read these days are Dr. Seuss, I am absolutely no help whatsoever. :-)

The only others that come to mind are a bit too old for him...I'll keep mulling it over. =)

Sorry but my kids are still too young for those kinds of books. One day soon I'll becoming to you for suggestions!

It's so great that he loves books!

I'm glad you had a good time with your friends.

Regarding the books, not sure what to tell you, but I think you'll get lots of advice from those with children the same age as Red. I think it's terrific that he loves to read.
