Our DS is in year 2 and will be 8yrs in December. He is bright and able - he's in the highly able group for both maths and literacy.
I don't agree with forcing children to do things but now he is confidently free reading, he thinks thats it and he doens't need to read any more, mainly because he doesn't overly enjoy it and would rather be doing maths!
I just want to keep him reading (he is quite active and its a good way of getting him to sit down occasionally!) and so I want some books that would grab his attention and get him interested in books a bit.
When I was young, I read some of those Choose Your Own Adventure books where you decide how the story progresses.
Can anyone else remember these? I can't remember what age they are aimed at and I can't seem to find any in Borders/Waterstones etc.
Can anyone suggest anything else? If I do get him to read, he likes non fiction OR adventures!
Bright and able DS who doesn't enjoy reading!! Anyone suggest any books for him?
