I Owe My Mother for the Love of Books

The title says it all. From my earliest memories, I remember sitting in my mother’s lap while she read to me. Some were Little Golden Books and Wonder Books (my favorite was the BingityBangity School Bus) and others things like Grimm’s Fairy Tales (favorite: Town Musicians of Bremen).

Don’t underestimate the power of reading to your children. They don’t need all the TV and electronics, they need someone to read to them, to open their minds to the wonder and power of words.

I thanked her while she was alive for giving me a love of reading, but I reiterate it: Thank you, Mama!

🙂
