My kids are readers, all of them. And for that I am so grateful! Just today between my 4 kids, we checked out 34 books from the library, super long chapter books for the oldest child down to easy readers and picture books for the youngest! All the books will likely be read by next week and we'll return them and get more!
I happened upon this precious scene this morning:
Yes, even, Madeline the dog is getting in on the reading (only she must rely on the mercies of a pajama-clad 8 year old to hold the book and turn the pages for her)!
