What’s on The Seven-Year-Old’s mind this week?
Our semi-weekly survey of the tidbits that cross The Seven-Year-Old’s desk.
In the news:
Did this man catch a giant catfish or the spawn of Cthulhu? (Huffington Post)
The Seven-Year-Old’s grandpa got her hooked on the TV show River Monsters, so naturally she was fascinated to read all about this giant 280-pound catfish on the Huffington Post. I just wish the not-safe-for-kids quality of the sidebar articles on Huffington Post didn’t mean I had to stand over her shoulder while she did it.
Baby woolly rhino discovered in Siberia is first ever found (Huffington Post)
Before I could pry her away from the quagmire of sensationalist reporting that is the Huffington Post’s science section, The Seven-Year-Old clicked on an article about the discovery of a remarkably well-preserved woolly rhino in Siberia.
Tired of hovering over her shoulder, I quickly diverted her to the National Geographic Kids site.
A sampling of this week’s books:
Searching for Dragons by Patricia Wrede
“I found this on the ottoman, Mommyo, and I haven’t been able to put it down.”
Tales of Bunjitsu Bunny by John Himmelman
The Seven-Year-Old is super excited because she is the very first person to ever check this book out from the library. Apparently, they just received it this week.
The Marvel Encyclopedia
The Seven-Year-Old would like me to point out that she’s not reading this one cover-to-cover, just the interesting bits.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid #4: Dog Days by Jeff Kinney
A reread. She’s been through these before.
