It may be summer, but EK has spent about thirty minutes every day reading. Tonight EK read on his own for thirty minutes. He was reading a chapter book from Hometown's public library.
After EK finished reading by himself, mr. mil10 read to him from another library book. Shoeless Joe & Black Betsy, written by Phil Bildner and illustrated by C. F. Payne, was an enjoyable read that explained Shoeless Joe's quest for the perfect bat as he journeyed from amateur baseball player all the way to playing in the majors. Written in a kid-friendly format, it left the more rigid biographical details to the afterward. You don't have to be a baseball fan to enjoy the story so go check it out--we have to return it to the library tomorrow!
