Big Brother’s school is having their Scholastic book fair this week. Even though we spent $50 at the bookstore yesterday, I sent him to school with $10 today so that he could do some shopping during library time. He was quite excited about the prospect.
The following represents what it must have been like as the first graders were paying. See if you can pick out which kid is BB.
Yep, that’s BB buying the WWII book. And this is after he talked me into letting him get the WWI book last night at the bookstore! Tim wasn’t 100% sure about my decision to let him get the book, but in the interest of encouraging his growing reading habit, we decided that as long as BB maintained the proper attitude (that it is serious and interesting, not “cool”). We also told BB that if he read anything he didn’t understand, he should ask us about it – of course, he probably won’t read the books without us much anyway.
