first bookshelves

靖愷的書越來越多,小小的玩具箱已放不下。有天終於決心整理一下,在儲物房裡找來這兩個auntie sandy數年前送來的木架,正好用來放大大小小的書,一個放在客廳,一個放在睡房。



其中一個最喜愛的作家roald dahl說
“Oh please, oh please, we beg, we pray,
Go throw your TV set away,
And in its place you can install
A lovely bookshelf on the wall.”
雖然兩個小木架的藏書不算多,但慶幸小人兒算是對書架上的頗感興趣,睡醒後吃飯時玩過積木後無聊時總會拿著書要人為他讀,偶爾也看到他有自己看書消磨時間的一刻。

媽媽小時候不算喜歡看書,記得初中時每年暑假派來的summer reading list,每每只能完成聊聊三數本,也不記得是何時才從書本發現了另一個世界。愷愷,從你新學會的詞語,從你自發地看書的舉動,我深深體會到從小培養閱讀習慣的重要。

Well, there is this "guy" in our house has probably dream of a similar thought: "Oh please, oh please, "I" beg, "I" pray,Go throw your TV set away, And in its place you can install A bigger 65" flat screen TV on the wall.”......

hey, I don't see any Chinese books on the shelf....Rafael is so cute when reading. Yoshi would probably still enjoy flipping pages, or secretly tasting it while I am not paying attention...

Fully support the revolution for kids to turn to books and stay away from the TV! :)

Instilling good reading habbit is one of the best gifts we can give to our kids, second to breast-feeding. :)

For the Mandarin class in CWB, it's by "Dong-shan" (http://www.alihk.net/web/ch/index.php). The Ms. Tian at the CWB branch is simply awesome! Try it out!

I love Roald Dahl's books so much!

@Yoshi
I ordered some children books by Eric Carle (in Chinese) from Taiwan.
