How I keep the TV off at home without complaints!

Just wanted to share that one night recently after Deal Girl went to bed, Deal Kid and I spent an hour just sitting next to each other, engrossed in our Percy Jackson novels. I finished book five in the set below, and he read 250 pages IN ONE DAY of “The Lost Hero” above. So, if you’re looking for books to engross your kid, this series is definitely Deal Mommy Tested!

Once Deal Kid became more interested in Yu-Gi-Oh than Dr. Suess, it has become more and more difficult to have things in common. Fortunately, one love we share is reading. He’s too old to be read to, so we’ve created an ad-hoc “book club” where he reads a book, then I read it and we discuss. I always let him read first, so he feels like he has a lead on me. We’re now working on the Percy Jackson Series, and I’m enjoying it WAY more than I thought I would.

Please share what book series you and your kids have enjoyed together. I’m always looking for ideas!
