John is gobsmacked when the kids use the encyclopedia he bought to press leaves. He shouldn't be because neither he or Elly actually read to them.

(Strip Number 1095, Original Publication Date, 11 October 1986)

Panel 1: Elizabeth asks Daddy to lookit the autumn leaves she an'Mike brought in because each one is diff'rent an'there are even some they don't recognize.

Panel 2: She then says that Mike says that they hafta use the encyclopedias.

Panel 3: John is happy that Michael is getting out the encyclopedias because he thinks that the thousand bucks on them he spent is finally coming in handy.

Panel 4: When he finds out that the kids are using the $1,000 set of books for pressing leaves, he goes all gobsmacked.

Summary: He should not be because there's a factor he doesn't know about that has dedicated herself to destroy any interest the children might have in reading. Said factor has made the library a no-Patterchild zone and screams a blue streak when children don't handle books to her satisfaction.
