Audio Books

Henry and I listened to a few audio books while field tripping. Here are some of the good ones, with comments provided by Henry:

1. On the Course with Tiger Woods by Matt Christopher -- This book is about golf superstar Tiger Woods. Matt Christopher, the best sports writer for kids, gives us the inside on Wood's life. This book is a must-read for young fans of legendary Tiger Woods.

2. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl -- This is a masterpiece about a boy named Charlie and his love of chocolate. One day, the mysterious Willy Wonka sends a note saying he will be admitting five children, and only five, to tour his factory. There are five Golden Tickets under five Wonka candy bars, anywhere in the world. And so, the race begins......

3. The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid by Bill Bryson -- Autobiography of the author's childhood in the Midwest in the 1950s. Like millions of his peers, Bill Bryson grew up a superhero, in this case with a old football jersey and 'laser' vision that will hold you to your seat. This book is laugh out loud funny!

Henry seems comfortable with the book reviews. He should start his own blog so he can comment on the Percy Jacksons, Harry Potters, etc.
