reading lists

People often ask me what my kids are reading. Punk is an avid fiction reader, while Kooka is more inclined to sit with a dictionary in her lap for 30 minutes, just trying to improve her vocabulary.  Regardless, while no means comprehensive, this is an idea of what their year in "pleasure reading" looks like:
