One of my fondest memories of childhood is sitting in my Granny's lap and listening to her read a book to me. The words came alive as she read such books as I Like the Farm by Nancy Hoag Wolff and Frisker by Mary Lauer Nowak. I can still remember exactly how the pages sounded as she would lick her finger, grab the top corner, and turn. Those precious times encouraged a love for books that has continued into my adulthood. I have treasured reading to my children when they were little and look forward to someday reading to my grandchildren. I hope you will take the time while your children are little to pause for a moment from this busy life and let your child go on a spectacular adventure as the words come alive for them as well!
