What's D-Man reading?

D-Man loves to read.  Now that he's had such a big jump in reading level over the last few months, it's widened his book selection.

For school we're going through Sonlight's Readers 2.  These books are pretty easy for him, but I can't think of any reason for him to read harder books at his age as long as he's enjoying them.  His current book is The Beginner's Bible.  He loves having his own Bible to read.

D-Man reads a lot of books for fun.  He gets to pick these books himself, but I do steer him towards appropriate selections at the library.  We also have a pretty nice collection of books here at home for him to choose from as well.  He'll often take 5 or so Dr. Suess books from our shelf to bed with him.  Last night, he decided to start reading The Christian Liberty Nature Reader Book 1.  These are great readers for kids who like science.  I asked him how much he'd read and he informed me that he's reading one chapter each night.  Last night's chapter was about a wasp that digs.  He told me all about this wasp and how it isn't a wasp when it is first born.  I was surprised he remembered so much information.
