thanks a lot, jedamum!

i hv 3 kids and my boy is not a reader type. he only likes to see pictures. if u read wif him he will read. if u r not free or dont hv the mood or energy to sit wif him, he will by default just play. but he loves the english robin readers cos got sound effect of the dragon, etc. he is a drama type of person. so i thot of doing the same for chinese. this robin reader n drawing or lego are the only things besides tv that will keep him from running ard
