      Thanks! Will try to be organized, print this, and head to library. What to do when 1st grader already readin C.S. Lewis and first Lightening Thief (?author?) and needs to be challenged w/o content getting too scary/adult for 7 yr old? Suggestions?
      thanks-I’ll take my answer off the air.
