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

Short post today, because reasons {(pick one): summer, construction, would rather be outside, typing on iPad is harder work than on a proper computer, it’s a holiday weekend, OMG is that the laundry pile?}. 

The Nine-Year-Old’s been on a Roald Dahl kick this week. Charlie & the Chocolate Factory, Charlie and the Glass Elevator, The Twits, The BFG… All got read this week, although only The BFG got a picture this week, because {reasons}. 

In other vitally important news, The Nine-Year-Old also watched the BBC version of Pride & Prejudice for the very first time this week. I’m certain it won’t be the last. She wants to make a summer project of doing crafts while watching all of the Jane Austen films available through Netflix. This plan warms my heart.

Enjoy the holiday weekend, y’all.

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 will focus on science, and how parents without a science degree can answer their curious child's questions without enrolling in a college level refresher course. In the meantime, you can find me blogging about life with a very curious Eleven-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.

    When the wife and I see BFG, we think of something entirely different!
