    My children need a book to paper mache with. They have been very interested in recreating the scene in Back to the Future 3 where Mary Steenburgen arrives at the water tower in order to catch up to the train that had been stolen by Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd.

    my future kids need a bed time story…

    I once b*-slapped a bald eagle… I’m pretty sure this book was written about me.

    I have two kids, they both love to read. One is 10, she loves robots, gadgets, art and taking things apart. The other is 13, he loves science, math and all things Apple. Two books for two kids, very symmetrical.

    My oldest likes to read and my youngest likes being read to. My oldest would like it.

    My daughter loves to read. She has consumed both the Harry Potter series and the Percy Jackson books. Now she has started Alex Rider.

    Now she can also get 10 points for the Accelerated Reading program at school.

    My son enjoys the Alex Rider books and would love to have another one to read.

    I am a 22-year-old girl with an 18-year-old brother; we both highly enjoy the Alex Rider books. I don’t remember which of us discovered them, but whoever did immediately told the other about them, and we’ve been sharing each book since then — even though we may be “too old” for them. Our youngest brother has also been reading the books lately and loving them too, so the latest Alex Rider book would be one of the best possible present a poor student like me could give her brothers this year!

    too scared to leave my email address last time, so I assume I didn’t win. Way more entries this time reducing my chances — but I’ll try again anyway. I have an 8 year old avid reader — hoping to turn him into a maker as well. I think a book like alex rider might be inspiring.

    dammit….that’s why i didn’t put my email in the first contest….GRRRR
