"Oh, the beauty and mystery of words!
What richness can be conveyed by those who master them!"
"Every child ought to know the pleasure of words so well chosen that they awaken sensibility, great emotions, and understanding of truth."
"Books are no substitute for life, but a keener pleasure comes to life because of books."
"Facing failures and tragedies with the characters
of a story may vicariously give children the experience of courage and loyalty."
"Good literature teaches more than we know.  Example always speaks louder than precept, and books can do more to inspire honor and tenacity of purpose."
"Reading should offer the solace of hope and goodness of another world where truth and right triumph."
Reading aloud to the children is just about my favorite way to close a day.
I think its value is immeasurable!
Our current read aloud is Homer Price by Robert McCloskey.
Next  ~ Mrs. Piggle Wiggle by Betty MacDonald 
The Moffats by Eleanor Estes
They grow up so fast!
I'm cherishing these times with them.
