Reading Togetherness

I cherish the knowledge that I come from a long line of readers.  Our family acquires most our books for free from the local library, though we invest a lot of time into sharing literature.  Reading is quite a gift, though with every gift, balance is still necessary.  In our home, I hear myself regularly saying, "Please put down your book while you... cross the street, eat with your family, swing, have friends over, etc."  Hannah reads every children's book that comes into our home, not wanting to miss one story.  Here are some photos near and dear to my heart: my girls reading together.

  • A stronger relationship with you
  • Academic excellence
  • Basic speech skills
  • Basics of how to read a book
  • Better communication skills
  • Mastery of language
  • More logical thinking skills
  • Acclimation to new experiences
  • Enhanced concentration and discipline
  • The knowledge that reading is fun
