The Fish Book

I’m downstairs with my kids. As there’s a thunderstorm going on, I’ve turned off the computers and we are discussing what to do next.

Daughter: Read the fish book!

I look around and try to figure out what book she could possibly be talking about. Finally I find it. There’s a book on my bookshelf above my computer that has a fish on it.

Me: Are you sure? There’s no pictures.
Daughter: Yes!

I got down the “fish book.” It’s more commonly known as “Calvin’s Institutes of the Christian Religion.”

To their credit, my daughters (ages 4 and 5) made it to page 2 before realizing that they were bored out of their minds.

  1. Page 2? That is very cool. Sadly, my plaintext edition on my computer does not have fish and so my daughters have little interest in it. :-)

  2. I’m thinking that if I want to get my kids interested in theology, I probably ought to try wrapping my books in pictures of Dora the Explorer, Blue from “Blues Clues,” and Thomas the Tank Engine.
