Two weeks ago, I told Ah Lo to read some of the books in my bookcase. He scanned through one and two and found this series. He picked up “The Bad Beginning” and flipped through the first few pages. Ever since, these books never left his hands. He would get up early in the morning, weekdays and weekends, just to read it. He brought it to school to share with this friends, and read it whenever he had the time. Dai Bee borrowed book 12 (because it was strangely missing from the shelf) from his school library and gave it to Ah Lo. He finished it in one day. Now he can’t wait to get his hands on the last book. I guess once a child finds a good read, he/she will learn to read independently.
