That's lovely- thanks for sharing that!

Books DS6 has been enjoying this summer:

- Grandpa's Great Escape (David Walliams)
- Gangsta Granny (David Walliams)
- Demon Dentist (David Walliams)
- The One and Only Ivan (Katherine Applegate)
- Science Comics (coral reefs, flying machines, dinosaurs, robots and drones, plagues)
- The Series of Unfortunate Events books
- Captain Underpants books
- Charlotte's Web (E.B. White)
- Horrible History books
- Horrible Geography books
- The Narnia books
- Re-reading pretty much the whole works of Roald Dahl
- Harry Potter (books 1 and 2- we'll wait to continue the series)
- Tin Tin comics (translated into English)
- The "Who Was"/"What Was" series
- Beast Academy comic textbooks (not kidding- he seriously loves these)

I've also reserved an English translation of "The Little Prince" by Antoine de St Exupery at the library, as DS' French isn't yet strong enough to read the original. Once he's up to speed, I could see him loving the "Petit Nicolas" series by Gosciny, as well as Asterix et Obelix.

DS is also urging me to let him read some of these, which I'm debating due to concerns about maturity/horror themes:

- Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
- Treasure Island
- The Goosebumps series
- The Hobbit
- Rick Riordan's "Magnus Chase" series

I also found a neat book with 40 philosophy questions that he'd love, and a few books by Stephen and Lucy Hawking that play with physics in a fun way for kids. Will see if DS is interested.

What is to give light must endure burning.
