My son who "hates words," who burst into tears when I demanded he check out a book from the library, is now engrossed in a book about Obama. Be still my heart. Maybe it's the library reading club, the promise of a toy or free book, I'm just glad for this lovely site. This was the Ronaldo book he finished yesterday. Non-fiction is definitely his game.
The other one is still at the learning to read so really excited about books stage. I suspect he too will attempt to replace words with numbers when he starts math in school. I'll just keep forcing books down their throat until they love them like their parents.
