Since I was out of town last week and couldn't compile the Weekend Reading, here are two recommendations for today. Do read the post "Where's the Manual?" about a mom and her energetic, good-hearted boy. It's fine work from Kim at the blog Relaxed Homeskool.
Parents of children with extra energy should check out Dav Pilkey's autobiography at his web site; once an super-energetic little fellow himself, the Captain Underpants author spent much of elementary school in the hallway and was told by a teacher that he couldn't spend his life drawing comic books. A lot of kids will like reading his story, too. Pilkey's loopy picture books Dogzilla and Kat Kong are some of my son's favorites. Pilkey's real-life pets play the monsters.
