I was so happy that he wanted to read, I could have bought him 20,000 of them. To my astonishment, while reading the reviews, not every parent shares the love I have for the series of a little bit, kind of, gross books. Ok, so there are characters like Professor Poopypants, Bionic Booger Boy, and Wicked Wedgie Woman but HE’S READING. The negative reviews pointed out how there are other types of books geared for boys that didn’t use such offensive words. They are absolutely right. If their children want to read them, hurray for them. My son? He rather read about nasty nostril nuggets. (I could go on a tangent here about how everyone’s different and everyone parents differently depending on what works best for their children, etc. But I won’t. Let’s do pictures instead, shall we?)
SKB #3 likes them too.
It’s inspired a love of reading for himself and to his brothers and I am grateful for both.
So to Captain Underpants naysayers I say:
For the love of Captain Underpants, lighten up!!I
I’m using this post as a Togetherness sounding board to link to You Capture’s theme this week. It’s suiting since it shows the “togetherness” the books are binging them.
