Reading

"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 
and
The Moffats by Eleanor Estes
 
 
They grow up so fast!
 
I'm cherishing these times with them.
