Keep on Reading

To My Dear Children,

Keep on reading.  Read whenever there is time.  Choose reading over electronic things.




Alex picked up this book on his own and read it through.  Last week Annie dumped a bunch of books off the kids bookcases.  I was perturbed.  I insisted all the children help put the books away.  As we sorted through the books Alex picked out at least 30 books that piqued his interests, and he piled them aside.  He has taken time each day since to look them over.  He doesn't always read the books he looks at, but I am glad he is taking more of an interest in reading.  It's so difficult to get kids to read with the temptations of technology.
