We’re almost halfway!
Not much to update, still reading The Wild Things. Haven’t progressed much – went out to Barnes and Noble, and now I’m eating dinner.
But I wanted to update to participate in the Reading is Fundamental mini-challenge from Joystory.
“The challenge is to create a post celebrating the reading child and to link to the Reading is Fundamental webpage.”
Lots of great ideas for posts are included on the mini-challenge post, and I’ve decided to write a little bit about my childhood reading:
Books and reading were a huge part of my childhood. My Mom and Dad both read to me, and before long I was reading books to them. They made sure my supply of books never ran dry, and encouraged me to read whatever struck my curiosity. I am the reader I am today because of my wonderful childhood in a book-filled home.
Reading is the most important part of a child’s early education, and I love the support Reading is Fundamental gives to children.
What a great idea for a mini-challenge. :)
