Are you reading a chapter book now? We just finished Mr. Popper's Penguins. I think First Son would like it! My girls also really liked Antarctic Antics (penguin poems).
I've been trying to read Olga da Polga, but haven't had a lot of luck. The kids just aren't interested enough in it. Maybe we'll try Mr. Popper's Penguins. I've heard of it but I don't think I've read it myself.
Comments make me happy; thanks for speaking up!
