READ ME WEEK 2009
This is READ ME WEEK 2009. It reminds me of all the books I've read to my six children as they grew up. One of our very favorites was "Katy And The Big Snow." My children loved it and I think we wore out three of them over the years. I now have a new copy that I keep in the bookcase beside my big chair. I pull it out every now and then and silently reminisce about the good old days when the kids were young and loved our reading time together.
Some of you still have young children and some of us have grandchildren. I think it's so important to read to them while they're young. It not only encourages a love for books, but creates special memories that will never be forgotten.
***Do you and your children/grandchildren have a special book you love to read together? Perhaps it is dog-eared with pages falling out or faded from wear, tear, and time. Whatever it's condition, it will be forever treasured in the mind of your young person.
