Comments on: "National Get Caught Reading Month" (8)
It is so important for all children to be given a chance to enjoy literature. I think I was rather alpha Mom when my son was a baby – ‘reading’ the one word books to him from age two months!! Still he loves books to this day…sadly many of his friends don’t read fiction any more. We both can’t imagine what that is like – not reading books…sad! I used to help with the reading in the primary school which was always a delight and wonderful to see the magic in the children’s eyes as they’d deciphered a sentence! A true gift.
Dear Annika, thanks for sharing a bit of your own literacy journey. How wonderful that your son still finds joy in reading fiction even when his peers don’t seem too. You are so right about the magic that books and readers help to create for our children. We can’t spread too much magic around. Happy reading! 🙂 ❤
