I don't know if my 7 yr old son is gifted or not. But he reads constantly - probably about 5 hours a day total. I'm wondering if it is normal for him to read so many books at once. He will have 3 novels going and then a few math books, an origami book and an astronomy book for example. He doesn't always finish a book. I don't want to say anything, because I want reading to be fun for him, but sometimes I think that it would be better for him to focus on a single book until it is done, rather than skipping around as he does.
Just recently he realized that if he took a break while doing a project that he would never finish it. So when we made a math game, he had us sit there until the whole thing was done, so that we wouldn't lose steam. I think it's great that he has figured this out about himself on his own, but I'm wondering if I should encourage him in the same direction in his reading.
