My ongoing dilemma is keeping up with my precious daughter's reading. Therese reads faster than I can find books for her to read, having read almost all of the American Girl books (I won't let her read the 1970s set) and almost all of the Little House books (she is on Long Winter now) before the end of first grade. According to the booklists, she reads at a sixth grade level, and while she reads very fast, she truly does understand and remember what is happening.
The problem is finding appropriate books for a six-year-old that are advanced enough for her reading level. Soon, I will post a list of her favorite books this year, but I want to ask my readers for help. If you have an advanced young reader, how do you make decisions on what he/she is allowed to read without reading everything in advance? I simply do not have the time to keep up with her, but I have seen some pretty pathetic books out there for elementary school children.
So, please hit the comment box with your suggestions of book lists, websites, or other resources that help you make such decisions! I can't wait to read your advice. I will try to compile it all for a future post, as well, so your comments may be republished (without your name, of course).
