They say kids learn to love books not only by being read to but seeing their parents reading. This is challenging these days when most families spend too much time in front of the TV or playing video games. (not that these are inherently bad). As an aspiring teacher I worry about instilling a passion for books into my students. It just came so easily for me! I can't think of a better example to one's kids than you. You've taken our interest and done such great things with the book club!
Thank you so much, dahling Goddess Ouisa. I have to say, when I like something, become passionate about it, there is nothing that gives me greater joy than sharing that with others. Book club, the Lex and Dex, discussing the books with my mother, it all adds a richness to life which I know realize is connection. Connection via a common interest. Legos with my boy, books with my girl. It's all good.
