Big Reader

Josh picked four books to bring with him on our weekend trip to Malaysia:  a Geronimo Stilton book, a book from the Magic Tree House series, Rhyme Stew (Roald Dahl), and Big Nate Strikes Again (Lincoln Peirce).  He managed to finish all of them before our 3-day trip was over.  What with this --

and this  --
{That was the only way we could get him to pose for photos.}

and this --
{Remember the one where we put Zoë inside a big urn?  We wanted similar shots of Josh and this is what we got.}

Josh got bored of re-reading the books we brought that he read the papers on the flight back.  He has yet to master the art of reading the newspaper, though.  By the time he was done, his seat and the floor had pages of newspaper strewn all over them. 

Maybe he’s not used to the size of a newspaper; maybe turning the pages proved to be a bit unwieldy; maybe he needs more reminders about being neater with things. I was just so tickled to see him holding up a newspaper and actually reading the articles. We get our news through electronic media, so this is quite a rare sight.  (And yes, I did ask him to pick up the papers off the floor when he was done.)
