My 8-Year Old Is Reading: Dr. Nicholas Is Ridiculous! My Weirder School # 8
Written by Dan Gutman, illustrated by Jim Paillot
School of Rock reinvented the math curriculum. Dr. Nicholas might as well reinvent history programs. Except the history lesson of Dr. Nicholas talks about toilet bowls!
Is there such a thing as a quick read for kids? Because this book went through the hands of both my girls and a friend of theirs in the house in less than two days. That’s a girl age 8, a girl age 9 and a girl age 10. Need I say more? A clear winner for the under 10-set.
However there’s more to history lessons than the toilet bowl. Your kids will read about a fabulous time machine and maybe pick up a couple history fun facts. Whether they learn anything isn’t the point though – they might just conclude that history can be fun.
