My kids love to read what I call 'dessert' books as well as 'main course' books. In the summer I have to remember how important it is for them to read dessert books. Yesterday at the library S, checked out a Stink book by Megan McDonald which he finished by the time we got home from the library. Definitely a dessert book, but we all know how nice to read a book and not have to think at all!
I could do without the series books that churn out a new title each month, but I understand why kids love the predicability of these types of books. This summer we are reading dessert books right along side our main course books and enjoying both!
