DBR Books Blog asked the age old back-to-school essay question that teachers always present to their students every year: What did you read this summer?
Didn't you hate that question at the beginning of the school term every year? I am sure you hated it, especially when you didn't read anything all summer. DBR Books' suggestion is to "get an early start on that question or on the school's reading list and purchase a copy of the classic American novel - To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee." The book is available on DBR Books store at http://booknews.tripleclicks.com Price: Now $5.95 - 34% Savings!
To Kill a Mockingbird too heavy a read or maybe it's not your kid's idea of a fun read? Then try graphic novels, like Diary of a Wimpy Kid or Big Nate. Many graphic novels have found their way on schools' reading lists; and are deemed qualified reading books. They are fun books and a good way of easing kids back into their reading exercise.
