Ah...The Wonderful Discovery!
It finally clicked today for Sam...the joy of reading books!
So far, reading has been on a demand basis only, required of him by his teacher (mommy) and accomplished through a few minutes at our kitchen table so we can move on to the beloved subject-Math. I will never understand that, but...oh well!
I was straightening the house and I happened upon little boy Harmless engrossed in the comic book of his choice without prompting!
Good for you, Sambo!
No, it's not the classic literature I would hope for him to read but for now, Dad's old comic books will do!
(Final note- Lest you fear that this indoor hobby will turn him away from his outdoor adventures...double click on the picture and look at his feet! DISGUSTING! Boys really are gross!)
