Onto the kids. Currently, Mena is into Olivia and the Missing Toy and pretty much any book from the Olivia series. The books are written by Ian Falconer . The stories, which feature a pig named Olivia are funny and I really enjoy the minimalistic illustrations.
Idris is totally into zombie and comic books, as well as, graphic novels. However, he has summer reading to complete, so we had to pick something off of the approved list. He chose Hoot, by Carl Hiaasen. It's about a boy who's new in town, who befriends some other kids and they try to prevent the destruction of an owl colony. He's not that far into the book yet, but says "It's Cool," which translates to "I haven't made my mind up about this book yet." Anyway, the book won a Newberry Award, so it must be pretty good.
What are you guys reading this summer?
