I recently joined as a Netflix DVD Director (Basically someone who thinks Netflix DVD is awesome) and I received my monthly email. They were talking about an amazing giveaway they are running. I’ll tell you more about that in a minute. The entry for that giveaway was to list out 5 movies you would want to get stranded with. It got me thinking a bit about how moms feel a little stranded on rainy Summer days. That’s why I decided to share these book inspired Summer movie ideas.
My daughter has become quite the avid reader. She devours books before I can even catch the whole plot line from her. I wanted to share some of these titles with you in case you are looking for great books for 10 year olds. I’m pretty sure she wears out our local librarians looking for the next adventure to go on. These are on different reading levels because she simply reads what she enjoys.
10 books my 10 year old is obsessed with – Great Books for 10 Year Olds
When my children were born I read to them from day one. I loved to snuggle up and read a good book to my babies. When C was around 2 or 3 I read to him while he built legos. For R, I read to her until she wanted to read by herself. As of late I have realized how important it is to read aloud with older children. I used to think it wasn’t a big deal to let them read independently. After all, independent reading is a very important skill for children. However, I have been learning that it is just as important to read aloud to my older children.
