Today, I helped my 7 year old pick out his books. There are 13 books in the Light Reader challenge, and we have picked 12 of them; the 13th is a book published in 2017, which we will have to choose later. As my son is only 7, and will want to read other books as well, I am expecting him to read these over the whole year, and not to go onto the next level of the challenge.

Here are the books we have picked:
1)A biography: Carry On, Mr Bowditch by Jean Lee Latham

Clearly I've had to stick to the categories loosely for this age, but I think we've kept to the spirit of the challenge. I'm hoping that he will enjoy working through them over the year.
