Being read to...


We do a lot of reading in this house.  And a lot of being read to by others as well.  In fact, as we get more independent readers in this house, I think the amount of reading to others grows.  So, as I was reading this past week, this really jumped out at me.

"When you read a book, the story definitely happens inside your head.  When you listen, it seems to happen in a little cloud all around it, like a fuzzy knit cap pulled down over your eyes."
-Robin Sloan, Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore

Enjoy the weekend!  I hope you have time to snuggle up with a book yourself, or even better, have a little person read you a story or two.

Love this! I will never get tired of hearing the 8 year old reading to the 3 year old. C is starting to memorize books and even "reads" Elephant & Piggie books to us. So. Awesome!

Very cute. They are both so into the book! And Jack is definitely a reader too.
