Chapter Books

After a recent trip to the public library we were introduced to chapter books by Mom.  We were quite hesitant at first to embark on this adventure after Mom informed us that a lot of chapter books don't have pictures, but we were willing to give it a try.  Mom selected My Father's Dragon as our first book, and we couldn't be happier.  There are a few pictures for us to look at, but we really don't need them because the story itself is so good!  We beg Mom after every chapter to read just one more.  Sometimes she obliges, but other times we are left hanging to dream about what may happen next.  The suspense is torture, although I had some relief when I figured out last night (just by looking at a map on the back of the cover) what the next chapter is about.  We only have a few chapters left before we reach the end, but Mom is prepared as she checked out one other chapter book, The Mouse and The Motorcycle, for us to enjoy before our books are due.  Who would have thought not having pictures could be so good!!!
