I realize we all have busy schedules but it's so important for our kids to see us reading. I finished reading the final installment of Harry Potter last weekend. Why Harry Potter?
I truly believe had it not been for this series, my nephew would not be reading. I wanted to read the book that really turned him on to reading for pleasure. Not only did I enjoy it, but I went on to read all the others. Not only am I able to share the experience with him, but also with my niece who has read each book more than once.
