So true! I loved reading to my daughters, my grandsons and my students. My daughters and grandsons would go to bed early because they wanted to have a book read to them. My students didn't want to be absent because they would miss a chapter from a classic book.
Even my sister, who pretended to be mentally disabled because we carry a physical disability...even she had fond memories of being read to. It might have been the only happy thoughts to remain with her through the miserable life she created. Powerful stuff here, this reading business.
Liza Robinson, this reminded me of when Vee was going through her books to give away...
Colleen Carey Luther- for your new venture- back of business card maybe?
Saw that joy today as I read to my Fifth Graders!!
