Holiday reading

After the examination, other than playing with their Monster High dolls and doing crafts, reading books has been parked in my two girls' things-to-do list.
These books above were all bought by my brother in one Chinese book fair on August from KL. There are 开心婆婆, 中囯成语,羽王之路 ,one Malay Moral Story book  and one English Moral Story book. I passed them these book early last week, and they have finished all of them before the weekend. My girls especially like 羽王之路, it comes in 2 comics, and it tells about Dato Lee Chong Wei's story.
These are mostly Odonata (红蜻蜓)books that I bought online and their cousin gave them some. They have yet to complete these books. Most of them are young adult novels, which only April can comprehend. May love reading Odonata comics only. I hope these books can last them till December, before the school reopens in January.
Since they have got many new books, due to space constraint, we had to give away some old books that they have outgrown. We kept only those they are still browsing. These were some of their remaining old books.
My two girls have outgrown big prints, colourful pictures and hard covered Disney Princesses and Disney Characters story books long time ago. I still keep them, because they are still in good condition. I will give them away when I run out of space again.
