reading with your children

If you know me, you know that this is a passion of mine. The passion I have for reading to my children and introducing them to great literature (well-written prose has so many endless benefits to all ages) - and just the downright, undeniable cuddle-time and physical security that reading together provides is, and should be, worth it to any parent.

The following link is to a blog that I occasionally follow and I loved the guest post while the author is on vacation. Check it out, it's worth the trip through the link to surf on over to a new website....

Oh, and P.S. - I recently won a contest on this website and am receiving a signed original copy of a new release of a great children's book!

Thanks for the link. That was a good post. And it's so true. Especially the part about making up stories for them or telling stories about "when they were little."

Congrats on winning! Awesome!
