This month Kyle (5 1/2) has enjoyed the Looking Closely picture books that I previously reviewed on 5 Minutes for Books (linked to my review). As he makes more and more steps towards reading independently, I am reminded that I may have to search for alternatives other than the chapter books that Amanda always did (and still does) enjoy. He spied these books on our shelf and has requested them a few times this month. They are beautifully photographed and well-written, so I don't mind reading them at all.
Amanda loves Margaret Peterson Haddix (linked to a previous post recommending another of her novels). She just finished the first book in The Missing Series, Found. She also re-read Running Out of Time and enjoyed it just as much the second-time around.
Now she's tasked me with the quest of finding Sent (Missing Book 2).
