How many times, as a child, did you hear that phrase while snuggled close to a parent? If it was many times, you were, indeed, very blessed.
Children who have the love of reading books instilled in them from an early age have many advantages. They find out there's a huge world out there, without ever leaving home. They discover people, places and things through reading. My late mother didn't cuddle with us much but, God bless that woman, she took my siblings and me on extremely important weekly excursions to the local library.
There was never too much money with a house filled with kids but we never knew it. We felt rich every time we left the library with a great big batch of "new" books. I feel that children who learn to read early in life and grow to love books have a better crack at succeeding in school, too. That early initiation into the world of books has resulted in a life-long love of books for all my siblings and myself.
Now, happily, I am a Grammie and my six-month-old sweet pea settles comfortably in the crux of my arm while I read to her. More often than not, she tries to grab the book and jam it into her mouth as she awaits the arrival of her first tooth. ha! I'm so grateful to my Mom for all those trips to the library so long ago. The little mama and baby bunny that sit on our kitchen table during the Easter season reminded me of all that. WHAT KIND OF BOOKS DO YOU LOVE TO READ?
