It may be the summertime, but it’s vital to your child’s learning to have them reading or read-to for at least 20 minutes a day.
I just finished Hailey Twitch and the Campground Itch from Sourcebooks Publications’ kids line Jabberwocky. Hailey Twitch is the main character of this Lauren Barnholdt story (and series) and she is a younger sister, trouble-maker/adventurer/explorer, an imaginative 7 year old who has her own sprite. Hailey will make your child want to continue reading; she is funny and always has mayhem following her. As a parent I love that this book teaches lessons in the midst of real life relations between sisters, friends, and parents (and in others in the series I believe classmates and teachers though this is the only book in the Hailey Twitch series I’ve read).
Hailey Twitch and the Campground Itch, which was released in April 2011, is just cute, Cute, CUTE. And if you read it with your child you better get used to triple words; that was the only thing that really got me about this book. However, I feel it is very age appropriate considering the emotion and attitude of the age.
If your child hasn’t been into the Hailey Twitch series yet and is in Kindergarten, 1st or 2nd grade then you should start your own collection. You can get a copy of the Hailey Twitch and the Campground Itch, which is the newest in the series, on Amazon for only $6.99 (paperback) and there is also a Kindle edition available if you wish for only $5.59.

Keep up the summer reading!!!
