I'm (still) reading "Out of Sync Child" (because I hate reading and it takes me forever to get through something). B's still reading "Tale of Desperaeux" (because we took a break to read "How to Train Your Dragon" and then came back to Desperaeux).

I have heard of that book. I have not read it yet but plan to when I can get a copy from our library.

I am currently reading "The Power of a Praying Woman" by Stormie O' Martian and "Autism and Asperger Syndrome" by Ana Maria Rodriguez.

The boys are going through our read aloud chapter book: "The Time Warp Trio: Knights of the Kitchen Table" by Jon Scieszka. The humor in the book was delightful. The book was tailor made for boys in my opinion and it's great! Had I not been a mom of two boys, I would not been easily amused by it. I found it a perfect for early readers and young boys reluctant to read books like mine!

There's also a tv show for the TWT. I can't remember if it's PBS or discovery... I think it's PBS.

I'm reading one of Cesar Milan's books about dogs, " A member of the family" we've really been into the BOB books and hooked on phonics books this week and for some reason, both children are going through a phase with Sesame's Streets, "The Monster at the End of this Book" which we read several times a day!

Thanks, I checked into it and it airs on Discovery Kids (premium Cable Channel). We just have basic cable. Maybe, I can ask my mom to tape a few shows (she has satellite tv).

Our family read aloud at the moment is the first Narnia book.

My oldest is reading a book of Japanese folktales.

My 4 yr old just borrowed a box of BOB books from the library and is working her way through those. She is so excited about learning to read! She's already done the first 4 and is eager to tackle the rest.

I will probably have Connor reading book 3 of the BOB books. We are still doing his lesson book on reading and writing so that is done daily. But Ive been having him read the BOB books to see how it goes and he's done amazing! He loves it too which makes me happy.

As for me...Im reading book 6 of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series.
