"My eldest son had difficulty with reading and we were convinced he would never read.... I discovered that there is a book called Teaching with Calvin and Hobbes.... It's lovely for vocabulary and comprehension. Calvin definitely has some personality quirks that I don't want imitated but... he also has some creative qualities that I want my children to embrace.... For reluctant readers it can increase vocabulary and make things interesting enough to guide the reader to bigger and better things."
