After all these years, after a collection of so many titles from many other authors, their first love is still the strongest. I wonder what is so captivating about the lives of a bunch of eccentric rats that make kids from all over the world go head over heels over them?!
Alycia and Sherilyn’s collection of novels and story books are enough for me to open a mini library for kids, I kid you not!
Is your kid a Geronimo Stilton fan-see too?
It was a day of revision for the girls on Saturday. They are sitting for their final exam starting today for a whole school week. After all the monotonous book stuff, which tired and bored them to the bones (that’s always the case when it comes to pre-exam revision), a surprise unfolded when the door bell rang. It was daddy and he had brought back bags of goodies! They were stacks of original Disney magazines, books, stationery, stickers, Japanese manga comics translated into English and BM, girls’ accessories and snacks! He had bought them from a church carnival and the goodies were worth a few hundred Ringgit. Alycia who was napping on the couch darted up to unravel the bags of goodies when he heard the excited “OOOHS” and “WOWS” from her sisters.
Stress buster — Alycia reading a very interesting Princess magazine in Malay language. I never knew that these magazines come in BM version too and it’s a perfect discovery as I can now buy these mags for them to read to improve their BM language. My girls love reading story books and newspapers but somehow, story books and dailies in BM would just bore them to sleep.
After spending over an hour checking out their goodies, we went out for dinner. I prefer to eat out during the exam period so that I can spend my time revising with the girls instead of cooking and doing the dishes which can take up to 2 hours.
Good luck girls! Dear God, please guide Alycia and Sherilyn’s mind, eyes and hands and help them to read their questions carefully. Please guide them to choose and write the correct answers to all the questions, Amen!
