Hi everyone. Some of you might remember me from years ago. My id used to be glenda02. I was around when these guys were 2 and 3 mostly. To reintroduce myself and my family, I'm a fortysomething SAHM with a dd (who'll be 6 next Tuesday - yeah I'm a little early but she fits more here than in the 4 & 5s) Megan and a 9 yo ds - Evan. Dh works for a major pharmaceutical company and we live just north of Chicago.
My major question is this... What are your kids reading? I'm trying to come up with a series to get Megan "hooked" on reading. We've got all the Magic Tree House books up through 27 and they've gotten a lukewarm reception. She's a very girly-girl and loves Barbie, fairies, pink, soccer, and plays piano. I'm trying to help her stay young so we're avoiding Lizzie McGuire, Mary Kate and Ashley (at least the stuff where they're older), etc. The Magic Tree House books are about her level but a slight challenge. She's read one or two of the Hopscotch Hill School books and enjoyed them. I've asked the librarian at the local library, her kindergarten teacher, my mom (an ex-elementary principal) and haven't gotten much help. Anyone got any ideas?
Thanks and I'm looking forward to spending more time here!!!
