Since it's close to Halloween, either you, or have someone you know that is fairly good at writing make a semi-spooky ghost story up with a mystery surrounding it. Lighthouses with fog and ghosts are always a good one. Do some research into a real lighthouse (plenty in the States and Canada) and print off a foggy picture of it (there are many wonderful photos of these lighthouses.) Then print off ghostly figures off the web. Go onto: www. Type in: Pictures of lighthouses throughout the United States (or Canada) Then type in: Pictures of Ghosts These types of stories get the kids interested quickly, they really want to see those ghostly apparitions (they don't have to be real ones) and they want to know what the big mystery to the story is. Tell them when they are reading the story there are clues in that story to figure out the mystery of it all. Here's a start: Children are taken on a special camping trip to a deserted Island with a Lighthouse on it. It's been closed down for many years because of a disappearance of a beautiful woman. It is said to be haunted by this saddened ghost. What happened to her? Why is she so sad? In the story, place clues here and there. Make the story only about 6 - 7 pages long (double spaced) or the kids will get tired of it quickly. I've done it and you'd be surprised how the poor readers quickly pick up speed, and the laughter and buzzing from the kids. They want to learn about the story. Kids today are getting more sophisticated at what they want to read and the "Harry Potter" books are a good example. It's fun, it won't hurt their little minds and after all .... Halloween is just around the corner. Boo! Good luck Marcy

How many books are for kids around 8?

There are lots of books for children. What is more important when choosing a book is not age, but the reading level of the child. Many children read below their age level and some are above. One way to check to make sure the reading level is proper for the child is to have his/her read you a section from the book. If they miss more than 2 words or skip over words the reading level may be too hard for them. Also ask them one or two questions to see if they understand what they just read. This checks comphrension and to see if they understood what they are reading. Doing these things will keep your child reading and the more reading they do the better off they are in school.
