My Author's Bio
we got those big little books, condensed classics with one page text, one page picture and started them on the classics. It was great fun. We read out loud to the kids until they were seventeen and eighteen. I really miss it.
I believe in the power and wisdom of reading to children. I’ve missed it for years and now am reading with our 15 month old grandson. He loves to “read”. We’ll say, “Please bring a book”, and he’ll go find a book from among his other toys. It was one of the first words we know for certain that he understood.
I always loved reading to my children, and for fun they read me some bedtime stories too. The first tiny story I read to my oldest son, we still have, it is very tatty and I still know it by heart (Teddy at the seaside). He knew it by heart even though he couldn’t read at the time. They were precious moments and he still like to keep this little book!
:-D! I love it when children have heard a book so many times and seen the illustrations so often that they can ‘read’ the book without yet knowing how to read the words.
Oh, I love these! Especially the Dr. Seuss one!
Thank you for your kind comment. I’m a huge fan of Dr. Seuss myself. My favorite young children’s book is Horton Hears a Who. Whenever I post a quote by Dr. Seuss it tends to be received very well.
