Holy Smokes! What just happened?

Last night, Natalie needed a chapter book to read for school. We didn’t have a new one to start and it was too late for me to run out and get her one. So I downloaded the Kindle App on their iPads and set up an account for Bill. There was no way I was going to log in with my account. She doesn’t need to see the kind of books I READ.

Anyway, she wanted to get a “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” book – so I bought it for her. She’s been begging me for the FIRST one since the beginning of time. She immediately dove right in. While she was entranced, I started poking around for free reads or books that were under $.99 for my little ones. I found a handful of really good ones!

I think all in all I put about 25 books on their iPads. Most of them were geared towards Natalie which means I need to do a bit more digging for Liam today. But my goodness – they are like ANIMALS. All last night and all morning long JUST READING. What is going on??

They woke up, got dressed, ate breakfast and then plopped on the couch and started READING. WHO ARE THESE CHILDREN?

I thought I’d put it out there just in case you have kids that are reluctant readers. Getting the Kindle App just might make a difference…
