A Great Book.

Need a good book to read to your kids?  Heck!  Need a good book to read period??  Here it is..

The Land of Stories

The Wishing Spell

By Chris Colfer
You know, the guy from Glee. 
This is the book I'm reading right now to my kids.  Yes!!  I read to my kids every night when they go to bed.  It's a tradition we've maintained over many years.  I don't know what we'll do when the boys move to the basement.  This is a wonderful story about twins Alex and Conner, who are in 6th grade and just lost their father a year before.  One of their favorite things about their dad was the stories he told.  They get the story book from their grandma and the book.... I'll stop there.  You need to read it.  It is fun, exciting and keeps you interested!!  The only problem is that that chapters are very long. So I usually split a chapter over two or even three nights, depending on the length.  But totally worth the wait each night.

I started reading that to Connor over the summer and he liked it so much that he finished it himself.
