Children's books

I am so excited to see more and more children's books available on the Kindle. I recently gave my grandson (he's 6 and reads on his mother's Kindle) three of the Magic Treehouse books. What a treat to be able to share my love of the Kindle with my favorite little guy!
I have also noticed several other series of books. This grandma could certainly spend some money.

On Bear Mountain

The reader knows from the beginning (the first line of the prologue) that the two main characters will meet. When the story itself begins, the two characters alternate from a first person view. Gradually the time between the two narrows until at the point I am reading in the book (about halfway through) each almost becomes a third person narrator for the other.
In the past I have believed that you can tell a really good book because you just can't put it down.
This book is so good that I willingly put it that I have time to reflect on it.
Probably the best fiction book I have read in a year.
I finished it today. Great read.
