My son has library time at school, and last week he came home with a book from R.L. Stine's Goosebumps series. He knew about the Goosebumps stories because we've seen a few of the movies, but this was the first book that we'd read together.
From the first page, my son was hooked. Everytime we'd complete a chapter, he begged me to keep reading. He tried to guess what was coming next, and he couldn't wait to see what would happen to the monster in the story.
The power of a good book is powerful for a young mind, and I'm glad to see that books have now captured my son's interest as well.
