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

Elvis: Collector’s Edition by Closer Weekly Magazine
The Ten-Year-Old is away at Grandma & Grandpa Summer Camp this week, doing secret Grandma & Grandpa Summer Camp things.

I obviously don’t have first hand knowledge of the books she is reading there, but I have it on good authority (Grandma’s) that when The Ten-Year-Old found Grandpa’s copy of Closer Magazine’s Elvis: 2017 Collector’s Edition, she spirited it off to an undisclosed location and it hasn’t been seen since.

Apparently, we need to review some basic rules of book sharing when The Ten-Year-Old gets home.

In the meantime, The Ten-Year-Old wants you to know that reading this book is nearly as much fun as catching lizards. When I asked her to bring the magazine back to some public spot so that Grandpa could read it too, she protested. “But Mommyo, it’s got all the facts about Elvis in one place. Do you know how long I’ve been looking for something like this?”

Fortunately for Grandpa, there’s a limited number of these books still available on eBay.

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.
