The Lightning Thief is that book for Alex.
The book that made him a reader.
Not able to read.
But enjoy reading.
He has dyslexia. He honestly went a month ago from reading mind numbingly boring early reader books to a novel.
(As a reward, we went on homeschool field trip to see the movie at 10:30 am on today.
Had the theatre all to ourselves.)
For David, it was The Diary of a Whimpy Kid.
For me, it was The BFG: Big Friendly Giant by Rauld Dahl.
What was it for you?
What book made you a reader?
(love Alex's faux hawk from the previous day mixed with a little bed head in the picture!)
