he loves the nightlife

We caught our son trying to read by his nightlight, so we're just letting him stay up late with his book--one of the biggest perks of homeschooling, after all, is not having to get up early. I'm not really surprised by the fact that, despite a bookshelf full of classic fiction available, his choice is The Magic Schoolbus in a Beehive... but all those essays on boys only reading nonfiction have me just a little worried. I'm very thankful he's a reader, but it would make me sad if the wonderful fantasy worlds of children's literature were lost on him.
