What’s The Eight-Year-Old reading this week?

feb12Our mostly-weekly survey of the tidbits that cross The Eight-Year-Old’s desk. This week, The Eight-Year-Old reads her first Terry Pratchett story. 

A sampling of this week’s books:

Our unusually happy reading streak continues this week with a momentous discovery. Terry Pratchett, one of my favorite fantasy writers, also wrote children’s books. What’s more, The Eight-Year-Old is exactly the right age to read them. This discovery prompted much joy on Mommyo’s part and launched more than a few giggles from The Eight-Year-Old, who read her first Terry Pratchett story on our Very Large and Very Red Reading Couch.

I’m going to be stuck with that couch forever now. The Eight-Year-Old has informed me that it’s hallowed ground.

About Shala Howell

I spent two decades helping companies like Bell Labs, Juniper Networks, and a genetic testing company that was later acquired by CVS translate some of the world’s most complicated concepts into actionable, understandable English. Now I'm working on a much harder problem -- fostering children’s curiosity and engagement in the scientific, artistic, and linguistic world that surrounds them. The first book in my Caterpickles Parenting Series, What’s That, Mom?, focuses on how to use public art to nurture children’s curiosity in the world around them. My next book, Did Dinosaurs Have Belly Buttons?, is currently planned for release in 2018. In the meantime, you can find me blogging about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, chatting about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, and tweeting about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.
