This is one of those cool hardback books with the appearance of a homemade journal, with envelopes and notes, and all kinds of cool extras (including a backward spinning pocket watch).
2. Blast Lab
BubTar is really into science and science experiments right now and this one has simple experiments to do at home, that seem to have a very high fun factor.
3. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw
4. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days
He got the first two books in this series today (to start reading now), so I decided to pick the rest up for Christmas. The trick will be some how preventing him from burning through the first two too fast!
5. Diary of a Wimpy Kid Do-It-Yourself Book
He was very interested in this fun do-it-yourself version of Wimpy Kid, too, so I snatched it up.
6. Guinness World Records: Gamer's Edition 2009
I bought him a Guinness Book of World Records the year he was born (2002) and he has been dragging it around everywhere lately, it only stands to reason that he would love an updated version that deals with one of his favorite hobbies, video games! My mom bought this one for him.
I also purchased a Phinneas and Ferb book (a KayTar and BubTar pick), Dora Saves the Crystal Kingdom (a KayTar pick), Wimpy Kid #2 (a BubTar pick), and Nighttime: Too Scared to Sleep (a collection of mildly scary stories I chose for BubTar)...all for a surprising grand total of $24! Volunteering in the library has its perks, evidently, one of which is MAJOR discounts on Book Fair fare. I intended to pay full price for these, but the surprise at the register sure was nice!
