We enjoyed the book throughout the weekend, and then returned it this week. His teacher told me she’s thrilled with how into books he is, so if he shows interest in any, she’ll let him borrow them for home. Not that we don’t have PLENTY of books at home, but I think he gets even more excited to read the book if it came from school. He just loves school!
So. Dilemma solved. Maybe I should just listen to my kid in the future.
