4-year-old Chicago native, Caleb Green, loves to read – so much that he dedicated himself to reading 100 books in one day. And after every 10 books he read, he celebrated with a dance.

His parents decided to broadcast his incredible feat on Facebook Live. When Caleb first told his parents about his goal, they gathered their bookshelves. When they came up short, some friends dropped by with more books.

“I was like, 100, son? That’s a lot of books. So at first, I had the gut reaction to talk him down a little bit but he was like, ‘No, I want to read 100,'” his father Sylus Green said.

Caleb’s father, Sylus Green, said at first he had a gut reaction to talk him down, but Caleb persisted and taught his dad an important lesson. Green said watching his son has definitely inspired him.

“I learned to just dream bigger and I am going to set unrealistic goals for myself this coming year,” the proud father told Chicago’s ABC affiliate 7 Eyewitness News. “And I’m going to be inspired by Caleb to not quit on him and just push through it.”

As for Caleb, he has big plans for the future.

“I want to be a basketball player. When I am 22 I want to be an astronaut and when I’m 23 I want to be a Ninja turtle,” he said.

Keep up the good work Caleb and keep inspiring!
