It has only been in the last few weeks that my 8 year old has (finally!) picked up a book just for the sheer pleasure of reading. K. is a girl who likes a good mystery, who likes to be a little bit scared (but not TOO much!), so when I picked up Stay Out of the Basement from the Goosebump Series by RL Stine, I thought it would be the perfect fit for her. And it was! She has now read 4 Goosebumps books, and she loves them. In fact, we’ve been reading them together at bedtime, and the whole family is enjoying them.
What a surprise it was the other day when K. was watching a little afterschool tv, and the Goosebumps commercial came on! She came running into the kitchen screaming, “MOM! Goosebumps is going to be on tv!!” 2 episodes every weekday in October at 8pm on Cartoon Network. We are BEYOND excited!
Bedtime just got a little bit scarier!
