Happy Birthday, Wacky Boy! and What We’re Reading over here

April 6th, 2008

To my son, who is now six: Happy Birthday, kid. Keep reading.



In the front of “Oh Say Can You Say” there’s a note from Wacky Boy’s Uncle W.:

“May I suggest Dr. Seuss for learning to read, meeting chicks and getting tattoos. There is always more with these books.”

Uncle W.
April 2004

That’s right. My son was two that year and already getting girl and tattoo advice from his Unky. This year he gave him a couple of “Summerland” (Michael Chabon) for his birthday. Wacky Boy’s auntie and grandma loaded him up with “Magic Treehouse.” We like 2 read.

But wait — there’s more!

Have any of you read this series? We’re just getting started…

Happy Sunday to you all. I’m now an official Volunteer Parent/Community Member Librarian.

Am thrilled.

    PS Nothing wrong with cupcakes if you ask me.

    I haven’t read that series, but I remember reading, and really enjoying, “Five Smooth Stones” by Ann Fairbairn many years ago.

    How fun to be a librarian. Books are the best. Have you seen the book The Dangerous Book for Boys? It’s great. I think you and Wacky daddy would love it.
    And Happy Birthday to Wacky Boy.
