My 4 1/2 DS reads at about a 2nd grade level (maybe higher), but he doesn't have much stamina. So, he can easily read Magic Treehouse, for example, but doesn't want to read a book that long out loud...

This is slightly off-topic, but with so many kids creating so much art, we have struggled with how to display it. This year, my son's montessori preschool did a big art segment culminating in an art...

Thanks -- that's a great cross-post. I'd forgotten about Qwirkle. He loves that one, too. I haven't played SET in years -- that's a good suggestion as well.
