When asked, my son will answer, “No,” he does not read for fun. The fact though is that he does it often but he gets so engrossed that he doesn’t notice himself doing it. We kept him home with a sore throat and he spent the whole sick day working his way through a fat stack of comic books. “What you’re doing right now,” I whispered to him, ” – I just want you to notice – You’re reading for fun.” His response was the little boy version of a growl. His unspoken message was “Grrrr, don’t ruin this for me.”
