My oldest DS 9 is an avid reader. I mean he never puts a book down! Since september he has read all 13 Lemony Snickett books, all 7 Chronicles of Narnia plus countless small books. Today he asked me for a new book and I gave him Phantom Tollbooth. He only has 20 pages left! As you can see by the titles he is reading at a much higher grade level. Would it be detrimental by me to make him put the book down say, for a day or 2 ?
On the other side of the spectrum my 2nd DS 8 has never, ever read a book except for one 1st reader. I've tried every kind of book possible in my libraries. He likes comic books but that's it and I don't have very many of those. Any suggestions of books for the beginning reader that enjoys more mature material and lots of action?
