11:22 am: It Happened!!!!!!!!!!

One of the Wright Children read a book written in English for personal enjoyment.

Over twelve years of raising children, and this is the first time.

Woohoo!

Hooray!

Now that our eldest is working at the library, she is showing more interest in books. Okay, it's the Guiness Book of World Records, but she's always preferred non-fiction.

Here it was a Club Penguin Stage Play fact book...but hey, it's a book!

Congrats to them both!

How is Jack?

Jack looks like a PETA ad with all the pins and other apparatus on him, but he is taking it well. This is not the first go-around for him with major surgery. Steve slept on the couch to keep him company. Finally got the pills down him by cutting them up and stuffing them into Pupperoni.

Pupperoni! Oh that's a clever way to do it. Wonder if that would work with cats, too. (Not Pupperoni per se.)

Congratulations! As an avid reader, I acquired library cards for our children at birth, read to them constantly, and always had ample books for them available. And neither child reads for enjoyment. Actually, my son corrects me when I say that and says that he enjoys his non-fiction very much. He does read constantly, so that is good, but he isn't the least bit interested in literature. My daughter doesn't read books at all, preferring an occasional magazine.

But, I have a daughter-in-law who delights in reading fiction, and we get along famously.

There does seem to be a general tendency toward liking non-fiction in this house, too, but the boys love hearing stories. I hope they will eventually learn to read them for enjoyment, too.

The first book read for enjoyment in our household by a child was a Club Penguin fact book. The second was a castle quest storybook with Mickey Mouse.
