I'll admit it -- I am not a patient, diligent "read-aloud" parent. Yes, I've read countless books to my littles over the years. But those parents you hear about who read to their two-month-olds for an hour every day... let's just say I'm not one of those parents. And yet, I've always said that I want my children to love reading as much as I do. I've selected books carefully, I've tried to build a "culture" of reading; but I've often felt guilt that I could be doing more.
So to see this on our couch virtually every day...
Well, it's bliss.
The older two are out there right now, because we just brought home a new "haul" from the library. Little Man wants to read everything, and Rosa thinks she can read everything (she's getting there!). And let's be honest, Laddie's just in it for the pictures and the fact that everything his big siblings do is Cool with a capital "C."
