So have you ever noticed
that if you try to display something
your children will mess it up?
I'm one step ahead of my kids this week and we are displaying books in the windows.
They like to read anyway, but they are beside themselves now. Everywhere they turn, there are books
they haven't noticed before.
They're just irresistible. . .
especially if you can warm your little toes up on the furnace vent. . . .
or snuggle up in your mom and dad's bed. . .
My mom has always encouraged and cultivated a love of reading and books. . . as demonstrated here by Daniel.
who was thoroughly involved in The Great Picture Atlas for Children when we were there for Thanksgiving.
My mom is great at creating every kind of relaxing environment though. . . my mom and dad's house is the one place I can go and totally kick back and let all troubles roll away.
And speaking of relaxing, how cool is my mom's dining room? I love her house.
But this has nothing to do with reading. So on with my current creative tangent. . .
And this idea borrowed from my friend Pam, one of my many mentor friends that ought to blog:
I found these Scrabble tiles today at a thrift store for 65 cents! Woohoo!
How do you encourage your little people to read?
