At 8 years old, we are into the Chapter Book stage of reading. Broxton has a love hate relationshop right now and I think it might be more hate than love, since he is totally burned out with school this year. I have already told him that he will still be reading and writing this summer and we have a new book in our stack to read. (No, I am not going to make him do school work daily, but I do want to keep his brain going and not just on video game mode.) One book we have to read? The Explorers: The Door in the Alley by Adrienne Kress. One thing I like about it? It is book one, so hopefully he will enjoy it and we have just found a new series to read!

THE EXPLORERS: THE DOOR IN THE ALLEY is filled with adventure and danger. There are missing persons, hired thugs, a hidden box, a lost map, famous explorers, a risk-averse boy, and a girl on a mission. Not to mention secrets not meant for the faint of heart. But if you are feeling bold, or maybe even a little italic, and if you enjoy derring-dos (and doing dares), this just might be the story for you.
The Explorers: The Door in the Alley is for 8-12 year olds.
I read the first chapter, just to get a feel for it and I already want to know what happens next. I think that this will be one that we will enjoy reading together over the summer. I mean, don't most kids love to go "exploring" no matter how big or small the adventure actually is?
