Right to Left, Back to Front
Pete teaches Orion to read Dragon Ball Z.
Aubrey's into manga and seems happy Orion has discovered DBZ, so he'll have a library right next door...as long as he knocks first.
It seems a good idea to teach kids to read various formats. I didn't understand much about comics until I met Pete. But now I can see that reading comics and manga and graphic novels broadens vision and teaches us to approach concepts from many directions, to be more flexible.
--which will come in handy when he's an adult, for sure.
It also seems a good idea to take photos of our kids in their rooms, with their stuff. It's for later---like thirty years later. Orion will think it's cool to see his toys and posters, not to mention reading with his dad.
It'll be like .....you know...time travel.
Have a good Wednesday.
Off to work I go...
