My daughter loves to read especially anything about dinosaurs and faeries.

That's a great idea about turning on the captioning, love it! I bet the encyclopedias keep her occupied. They can put so much information on those pages, and some kids really like reading non-fiction. I've gotten some great books like that for my boys and they love them.

I forgot to ask you if she is into any type of series with her chapter books? I haven't found a set yet that catches Sean's attention. Although he can read them, still think he finds them a bit daunting.

I think it's great that she's so varied with her selections :) I bet she'll enjoy reading the fantasy type books further along in elementary school.
