For The Love Of Reading

At the campfire, my son read a favorite Thoreau passage on his iPad. I was impressed with his reading aloud skills and told him so. He said, "Well, what did you expect with all the reading aloud you did, and had us do when we were young?"

I loved reading books to them. We would come home with a dozen or more library books where they were put on a bookshelf just for them. We would leave the TV off and they would snuggle into their beanbag chairs with their stack of books.

I acquired my love of books from my dad who had a library several shelves full. And I'm glad the boys still enjoy a good book. You can go anywhere without leaving the comfort of your beanbag.
