Today I am thrilled to introduce my first regular contributor.
It’s been a long time coming now, I know. With me blogging for over eight years, it only makes sense to finally bring three of the superstars of this blog on board. That’s right.
Our Owen is jumping into the game, and I couldn’t be more excited–or proud.
Owen has been home sick, sick, sick for the last week–yes, over Halloween, I know.
It’s been rough. He’s been so brave, and after doctor appointment after doctor appointment, dozens of temperatures taken, and many hours of coughing, we finally figured out what was ailing him–pneumonia.
But he’s been a trooper, and he’s a master at creating slide shows, so that’s what he wanted to do.
Here’s the skinny. . .
Books That Are Good for 8-12 Year Olds, by Owen Mascott:
He asked for no introduction and instead wanted me to get right to the point: his book recommendations.
Check it out, slideshow style:
Want to grab a few of these for the 8-12 year old in your life?
Here are some quick links:
- The Harry Potter series, by J.K. Rowling (Owen and I–sob!–finished watching the last of the movies while he was home this week.)
- The Percy Jackson series, by Rick Riordan
- Wonder, by R.J. Palacio
- The Geronimo Stilton series, by Lorenzo De Pretto (Cora is currently really into these!)
- The Big Nate series, by Lincoln Peirce
- The Hunger Games trilogy, by Suzanne Collins
What do you think of Owen’s recommendations? Do you have any feedback on his slideshow? Any questions?
He’d love to hear them!
Huge and happy thanks to new teachmama.com contributor and overall totally awesome kid, Owen Mascott, for this thoughtful and creative booklist.
Owen is 10 years old, in fourth grade, and his favorite sport is soccer. In the future, he plans to be a professional soccer player and dreams of one day receiving in invitation to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
