I had been trying to find something for me and MIB to do today and since my last post was about story time between parents and their children I figured I'd run with that theme.
MIB and I went to the library today to get her first library card! I'm so happy and excited for her. As a child, reading was (and still is, when I get time) my favorite hobby. To me, there is nothing like losing and transporting yourself in a story. And thankfully, I've instilled the love of the written word in MIB.
From the minute she was born, I was always reading something to her; just like my parents did when I was a child. Newspapers, magazines, the back of cereal boxes, whatever. I turn the closed caption on the tv when she's watching cartoons and give her a bedtime story every night. Sometimes, she reads a bedtime story to ME.
I'm just glad that she developed a love for books early and I hope that she continues to see the value and joy of books for a long time.
YCM'S, how do you keep literary love and appreciation high in your household?
