Reading to my daughter, Talitha.

i’ve said it before, and i’ll say it again: read to your kids! never ever pass up an opportunity to read to a child. if a child comes to you with book in hand and asks you to read a story, never object, just read. you can communicate more in those few short moments than any classroom lesson or lecture will ever convey. the sound of your voice, the trust of your spoken words – there is simply no beter way to teach a lesson and to prepare the mind of a child than to read. read often. read diverse literature. just invest some quality time and read. it will be one of the most rewarding things you will ever do. -bc

  1. thanks for the reminder and encouragement. sometimes it is too easy to say, “in a minute, i’m almost finished here…” especially with three crazy kids.
