I have three books full of Calvin and Hobbes cartoons that my oldest daughter loves to look through. I would not have guessed that she’d like Calvin at her age (6) but she can’t get enough of him. She has all the books lined up next to her bed. Every night she asks me to read her a few pages worth which I love to do as it brings back a lot of good memories over the years.
As I read the comic below tonight she laughed and laughed and I wondered if kids her age enjoy identifying with a kid like Calvin who is always getting into trouble. Whatever it is she loves the cartoons and will spend hours looking through every book, page by page.
Maybe I’ll surprise her with one of the newer collections this Christmas.
