It’s BOB!…

Yep, Bob has caused much excitement over here for the last week or more. Bob the cat. No, not our cat. James’ cat. Who is James? We don’t know him personally, but his and Bob’s story has had Tobias waiting daily for the post to arrive for more than a week.

Yes, if you guess that i’m talking about a book, you are right. But it is not one book but two books; A Street Cat Named Bob and Bob: No Ordinary Cat.

This is also Tobias' first read of a true story...

All about James Bowen and his ginger cat, Bob and their journey together through life. Reviews have been very good so when i had to order some other books, i thought i would get these too. i wanted to be able to read the same story as my boy and this was perfect; A Street Cat Named Bob is the original story, written for adults and Bob: No Ordinary Cat is adapted for children.

Look at him, all serious about reading the book :)

You see, Tobias has been on a reading project for a few months now. i wanted him to be able to read an entire book from beginning to end, instead of reading a few books a little bit here and there and never finishing them. He could read magazines or books, in English or German, as long as he finished them within a fixed time. And he has been doing wonderfully, with incentive, of course.

Well, my Bob book came first and he has waited (im)patiently for his copy to arrive. It finally did TODAY! And he jumped right into it! Already at the seventh chapter!

i had better go catch up on reading my Bob book.

Playing with our Bob books like the good cats we are ;)

PS: i’m so excited about this reading the same book together thingy. i’ll do the book review after we have both finished and if possible, i’ll get him to write (or at least tell me) a short review of his Bob book.
