Yesterday Ebi-kun finished reading Fantastic Mr Fox, it is the first chapter book he has read by himself so he was very chuffed with himself when he finally finished it. We actually started just before Christmas but then it got lost with all the Christmas things so we started it again a couple of weeks ago.
One of the things I love about Rolad Dahl books is the way that he he describes things and his use of big words. There were several words in the book that were new to Ebi-kun so I wold ask him to guess what they meant from the context and often he got it right, he couldn't 'get' belch and when I told him it was burp he was reduced to a fit of the giggles. I was hoping the film would be released around the time he had finished the book but there is no sign of it in Japan :o(
So, his next book is the first in the magic tree house set, these books have been recommended by many friends so I am looking forward to seeing how he likes them.
