Back in March, while at Walt Disney World, something caught my eye in one of the gift stores. We had just finished our adventure on Pirates of the Caribbean, so the boys were looking at all of the pirate goodies. Some books on display made me stop and look. The covers had Disney items on them, but they reminded me of the Harry Potter series. I took a photo of the books to research when I got home.
Yes, this was my introduction to the Ridley Pearson Kingdom Keepers series. Just a week or so later, Pearson was at Walt Disney World for the release of the fourth book in the series. I knew that I had to get my hands on the first one. I read about it and told NHL and TechyDad the general premise. We decided to do a read aloud of the book.
Yes, we have been reading The Kingdom Keepers: Disney After Dark together. I have a confession. I could not stop reading and have been anxiously reading ahead so I can move onto the second and third books that are already here from the library.
So, please excuse me. I have about 40 pages of my book left and really want to finish to tease the boys. Then, next week, I will be back with my review of this fun filled Disney series.

Just finished up Autumn Blue by Karen Harter. Ended up being a decent book—thought it was including too many trails to finish up well, but I liked it fine (I’m also not a harsh critic) :) Then read The Reading Promise by Alice Ozma. It was an easy read, a nice little peek into their lives. Quite a commitment to read together every night over 9 years! And now I just started Friendship Bread last night—I think on your recommendation :)
We’ve been reading “The Little Prince” with Cody and … while Austin is reading his own book, while listening to his ipod, he listens to us read “The Little Prince”. That kid is great at dove tailing and never misses a thing.
I just started reading “We Still Hold These Truths” by Matthew Spalding.

What would you guess is the reading level (grade) for these books? Could my almost 2nd and 4th graders read or a little too much for them alone?
