  1. An impressive list. Those cross section books are real winners!

  2. Thank you, Sarah. You're right about the cross-section books. They're very detailed and give so much information.

  3. That's more than one per day!

  4. Yes, he reads several books a day - fast reader. :-)

  5. This is awesome. I have at times kept lists of the books I read and as an adult, the most I ever read in a year was about 300. He's doing fabulous. I'm going to keep this list of books for the future. There are some that my nephews would like and many that I want to introduce my daughter to when she gets a little older (she's one now). LOL

  6. Well done Tiger! And well done you, you're obviously doing something right :-)
    Great list - I'm bookmarking. Thank you for sharing!

  7. Thank you for your kind words, Suzanne and Lucinda. It is encouraging to see a child enjoy reading, since reading is one way towards self-education. :-)

  8. Very impressive and challenging. I think I'll keep a list. Thanks for sharing. And, Hwee, just let me know if you want to jump back into the Homeschool Help Series...we miss you!

  9. Thank you so much for coming by, Savannah! Keeping a list is a good way to keep track of what children have read over a period of time. It's a good reminder for the parents that the children are always learning something even when it doesn't look like they're doing anything else.

    And also thank you for your invitation back to the series. Things have been slightly challenging around here for a while so it would have been difficult to keep to the commitment. I have been enjoying everyone's posts though. :-)
