I Am Grateful For: Calvin and Hobbes

Calvin and Hobbes
Bill Watterson

Why?? Have you read them????  
Two reasons
One: I have wonderful memories of getting a new Calvin and Hobbes books each Christmas and sitting all day and reading them laughing the whole time. 
Two: They are THE book that got my son reading.  For that I am ever in Bill Watterson's debt.


  1. That's how I feel about Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Even though my son isn't an avid reader now, these were the only books he would shut everything off and sit and read for!!

    1. Yes! That's completely the same here with Calvin and Hobbes still. Although I am very happy to see that he is finishing a second very long Star Wars book.

      (By Jill even those it says Ourclassblog - still signed in that way :) )

  2. I think a lot of kids really become readers through the comics. I love Calvin and Hobbes and really wish Watterson would come out of retirement.
