Chicago boy, 4, reads 100 books in one day, parents stream on Facebook

In one day, a 4-year-old Chicago boy read 100 books, including his favorites about Ninja turtles and dogs.

As Caleb Green’s reading marathon got started on Saturday, his parents decided to stream it on Facebook Live. He got a couple thousand views from people as far away as Florida.

And every time he finished 10 books, he did a little dance.

“I like to read and I want to read some more like my sister,” Caleb said.
