I have always been a supporter of reading.   We tried to instill the love of reading to our girls, and to teach them the value of books and learning.  Recently, I was given the book "Charlie, the Ranch Dog" written by Rea Drummond and illustrated by Diane deGroat.  I look forward to reading it to my grandchildren on their next visit.

This is one of the most treasured photos of when my girls were little.  One day I went into their shared bedroom and found my middle daughter reading to her little sister. The smallest one is actually absorbed in the story.  I remember that they did not even realize that I was in the room.  Oh, the special memories that we hold in our hearts.

At an early age my daughter started reading to her daughter.  That does my heart good, to see that being carried on to the next generation.

It also blesses me to see their grandpa reading to them, as he so often does.  I hope to keep the book industry alive, even with the popular Kindle on the market.
I think for children, the books and the pictures are effective learning tools, and helped to teach them so much.

Have you read any book recently, that you just could not put down?

The day is almost over, and I am off to start a new book.  I will let you know if I recommend it when I have completed it. 

Thanks for stopping by.
Tomorrow we will choose a winner for the pretty flower pin.
