Quote of the Day

"Everything is a shared experience when children are small, and I think one of the special times of the day is when a mother or father reads a story before they go to bed… I think it's very sad when one hears of people who never are read to. I think it's a very good start in life to be read to and then to learn to read that way."

Michael Bond, the creator of Paddington Bear, everyone's favorite clumsy but polite traveler.  PBS aired the TV series in America, and I always wanted to give Paddington a big squeeze when he would get into trouble.  From this BBC article.

  1. Yay…I like you, I'm glad you added me to your neighborhood. DeWitte's read to
    Nathan every night since he was old enough to understand. They used to read fun
    books like "The Pigeon Finds A Hot Dog" and they've graduated to things like "The Hunchback Of Notre Dame". It's fun for me to listen to them discuss what they read the night before because neither one of them would read voluntarily (At least fiction for DeWitte) if they were stuck on the toilet for an hour with only a book to entertain themselves.
