Comics day with Neo

I read my nephew Neo a story from a Batman comic book (DC Kids from PsiCom, not the mainstream version) today. Reading the comic at his pace made me appreciate the story a bit more. I had to point out the actions explicitly, telling him who was doing what. Some parts of dialogue were a bit complicated, in my opinion, so I had to paraphrase here and there. Every now and then, I would point to a particular character and ask him who that was. A little difficulty at first, but soon enough he got the hang of it.

After the story was done, I gave him some lessons in drawing. He still had some difficulty holding a pen. I may have to get him some crayons tomorrow so that they'll be easier for him to hold. Then, his parents and grandparents will have to watch out for their walls. He, he, he.
