A father's chronicle (Staying on the same page)

There are so many things to do in order to keep up with our kids. Cartoons to watch together, toys to play together.... and yes, for me now at this late hour of the night.... books to catch up.

Theophilus have read The Phantom Tollbooth for .... 4 or 5 times. And I think it is a great book. Actually, it was Yan who stumbled over the book while browsing through Amazon. She read a portion of it to him and both of them were rushing to the bookstore!

So, here I start.... I want to be on the same page as my son. I am going to read the book that he read.... and walk the same alleys of imagination which he has journey. I wished we have read it together.

Oh, I must confess: we bought him more books over the weekend. I think 6 of them. It will be gone in no time. Two classics - The Treasure Island, and The Secret Garden. The rest are for real nice fun with language. I wished I have had so many books when I was at his age. This is going to be real fun.
