Since schools are starting every where in America its time to get home schooling children reading again. A great book to explore with your home schooling kids is a book by Roald Dahl. The book that you have to get your kids reading to you is Magic Finger. My own daughter Aleli has read the book four times and enjoyed it. Go to the Wilkes Public Library and check out the book. Check out Scholastic for more information on the book at : http://www.scholastic.com/teachers/book/magic-finger .
You can also check out the page of the author and more on the author at : http://www.roalddahl.com/ . You can even enter the Matilda Readathon at : http://www.roalddahl.com/downloads/usapdfs/Matilda_Readathon_Entry_form_... . Consider getting your kids reading several books in the collection of Roald Dahl.
Get them back to reading and log the books they are exploring weekly. Let your kids read to you and let them check out the biographies of the writers. Go to the Wilkes Public Library and seek assistance in getting this book and many more.
