Scooby (TV Monster)

We finished Scooby -- TV Monster -- then in the middle of the night Matthew woke me up and told me no more Scooby - he didn't like the TV Monster. Scooby books did seem a little advanced and maybe too scary when we first started reading them -- now I know for sure! I kind of remember growing up and not being that into Scooby -- I never liked scary things either... like father like son.

Tonight it was back to basics -- 500 words book -- very boring and told him so -- but I also told him it was his decision to read it and if he wanted it we would read it. So I just powered through it quickly. Then a nightcap of a button pressing music Winnie the Pooh book that I had to sing the words too -- of course I can't carry a tune -- so it was not a pretty sight -- or should I say sound...

Scooby (TV Monster) and Amelia Bedelia

So we got about 20 to 30 Scoody Doo books from a cousin. Matthew likes them - when we first got them he seemed a little tentative since they could be slightly scary - but we took a break from them for a couple weeks and now he seems to be into it. For me they are somewhat interesting, with the mystery and all. Right now we are in the middle of the TV Monster one.

As for Amelia Badelia -- blah! This is the 2nd one -- forgot what the first was about but this one is about a Halloween party. Honestly it's just very stupid -- I guess that half the point - we'll see if Matthew asks for it again... giving it a D.
