Voracious Appetites

For the last few weeks, the boys have been bugging daddy to read these books to them at bedtime.

I bought the Universe book as a present for E a few years ago. He lugged back the Nature encyclopedia a few months back when he spotted it. Both books contain mind-boggling contents that even adults may have difficulties comprehending. 

Night after night, the boys descended on the daddy like wolves, hungry for knowledge. E, as usual, is ever so willing to feed their voracious appetites. 

While it is not about turning them into walking encyclopedias, a curious mind cannot be cultivated without the introduction to a certain level of facts and understanding them. The kids continue to amaze us with their abilities to remember the details and ask the most fascinating questions. It's all about having the exposure and opportunities.

Ooh! I remember my parents doing this for us when we were kids! With those huge encyclopedias :)

It's amazing isn't it...the things that they remember? Haven't visited for a while, hope you've been doing well.

Ahh...Corsage, so you were one of those lucky kids too! :P All I remember was my parents plonking us in front of the TV and we watched useless Channel 8 programmes! Hah!

Li-ling, it is amazing, and that's why we should not underestimate their potential. :> I'm doing well, thanks! Hope Georgia and you are too. :)
