Sharing the Joy!

So, here's a post that has almost nothing to do with reading -- but a whole lot to do with joy!  I've just spent the past week in Arkansas with my family -- particularly my newborn granddaughter Layla and her 16-month-old brother Brayden.  It just doesn't get much better than this!  (Can you tell that Nana is having a good time?)

As you can see, though, there is a book in the picture.  Whether or not he shares his Nana's love for reading when he's older, Brayden really enjoys being read to now.  You don't always get to finish the book before he's off to get another one.  But that's OK.  With the repeated readings of classics like Down by the Station; Row, Row, Row Your Boat; This Little Piggy; and Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes you learn how the story ends even without getting to the last page every time.  And those few moments with each book are priceless!
