This week Doggie boy and I have been reading the book Too Busy Marco by Roz Chast. We had borrowed the book from the library the week before during our fortnightly trip. At first he was reluctant to read the book as the cover page was not that appealing. However as we peeled through the pages of the book he got more and more interested in the story.
Doggie boy proudly announced that he created a masterpiece showcasing his favourite funny fishes- Cube-Headed La-Di-Dah, Peanut-Butter-And=Jelly fish and the Frosted Doughnutfish one evening after dinner. He also mentioned that it would be great if such fishes really existed at it would certainly make his day eating them.
My 5 yr old had been flipping through the book almost daily on his own and even started drawing out snippets of the story as shown above.I’m amazed at the details and clarity of his drawing of the different type of fishes that he read about in the book.
It shows that my efforts in reading often to the kids and trying to get them interested in reading different types of books have is slowly paying off.
If you are interested in owning your own copy you can get a copy from Amazon
