When the Green family realised they didn&39;t have 100 books, friends popped by to bring him some more. 

His father kept up running commentary on Facebook, updating friends and family on how far Caleb was in his marathon. 

When the little boy started losing interest, his parents reminded him to follow through with his goal, gave him some water and let him have a dance break. 

 

 

Break is over. We left off on 35. We are trying to get to 50 books before the pizza gets here!!!! Let&39;s see how many more he can knock out on his way to 100!!! Please share and help me cheer him on! calebreads100
