CONNECT WITH YOUR TEEN THROUGH BOOKS

a reading list

Permit me to totally geek out over a book list.  It might be the English Lit major in me, but man I’m excited about my 8th grader’s reading list for the year.  Last night was our curriculum night and his teachers shared the titles he will be reading this year.  The anchor document that his Language Arts teacher is using for the entire year is the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.  Ya, things have come a long way since I was in 8th grade.  I was totally impressed!  Without hesitation, I decided to read all of them too.  (Yep, there’s the book nerd in me!)  Hopefully it will be a way to talk about school and life in a non-evasive way.  One must tread lightly with teens!  In the very least, I will know the topics he is discussing at school.  As school kicks into high gear, consider reading the books on your child’s required reading list.

    I’m so impressed with you! Mom of the year! Peyton read Animal Farm over the summer for fun. I showed him Will’s list, I’ll let you know if he reads any of them. At Peyton’s BTSN I was actually thinking why is his English teacher taking the time to tell us which books they are reading?! Ha! The only one I remember from P’s list was The Outsiders, because he had already read it.
