When Rollo was five years young, his father said to him one evening:
“Rollo, put away your roller skates and bicycle, carry that rowing machine out into the hall, and come to me. It is time for you to learn to read.”
Then Rollo’s father opened the book which he had sent home on a truck and talked to the little boy about it.
