Kabouter is a good reader, but he doesn't seem to pick up the love for books that I had as a child. On the other hand he shares Jan's passion for comic strips, so he reads that quite regularly. Nevertheless, they are quite encouraged at school in all kind of fun ways to read regularly : in the fall there was a reading bingo in which we had to take pictures of reading at lots of fun places or in weird positions and in March there was a big "Masked reader" contest at school.
Anyway, he had received a lot of books around Christmas that were left untouched and with the prolonged Easter vacation his homework was to read every day 10 minutes. I negotiated with him to read 10pages in a non comic book each day. So he picked up one of the Christmas present books before bedtime...and finished it within 24 hours. (twice half an hour before bedtime I believe). He really does read smoothly.
