Raising a Reader

There comes a time in every nerd's life when you fear your children will not like books. I have to say, I was only worried for a short time with our Joe. That time is over. Last week, Jeff took the kids to the library and Kaity checked out "Wonderstruck" by Brian Selznick. When she finished reading it, Joe picked it up and couldn't put it back down! I loved the thoughts and feelings he expressed after finishing it.

"I wish Rose's story had been in words, too, so there would be more to read."

"I hate it when books end and there isn't another one because you still have more questions!"

"It wasn't long enough." Yeah, it's only 600 + pages.

Oh, the joy and angst of reading!
