This evening we had G's conferences. He is doing well in the second grade. He is in the top reading group and reading at a level "O". I am not quite sure what that means but I guess it is good. He is also doing well in math. He says that math is his favorite subject.
After his conference we checked out the book fair. Of course G found a book which he just had to have. It was only $6 so we went ahead and let him have it.
Yup you see right it is a monster truck book. Those who know G are not surprised at all. G is a huge Monster Jam fan and is crushed because they are not coming to the Twin Cities this year. The last 2 years we have gotten him tickets to see Grave Digger and Max D for his birthday because they come the weekend after. I mean the boy has over 100 monster truck toys and counting. I have already gotten him several for his birthday which is in a month and a half.
So he now has 3 books on monster trucks and he says that this one is the best yet. It is called Monster Mega Trucks...and other four wheeled creatures written by Timothy Kane. You can snag this book on Amazon for $5.84 here. So I guess I didn't do too bad buying this book at the book fair.
