I have some astonishing news! I read a book for me. It was even fiction and not a parenting book. And, ok, it was really a book meant for kids, but still, it had chapters and everything and only a few pictures. It was Clockwork by Philip Pullman.
I know I am not alone in adoring Pullman’s other work, specifically The Golden Compass. I had never heard of Clockwork until recently and it is a cute, creepy story. I would recommend this book for kids who are reading on their own and want something scary, but maybe aren’t up for Coraline-levels of scary yet.
Wow, that was a super short review. Maybe this is why I only talk about picture books.
