Reading daily is just a part of our lives… I read Fuller his lessons, he reads a book to me almost every day, and Damon’s new kindle has sparked a father/son reading marathon of the Wizard of Oz books (I think they are on book five).
I sometimes joke that having a child who can read is a big adjustment for our family. Suddenly Fuller is gathering information from word he sees, not just words he hears. At Christmas he was reading over my shoulder as I had an IM conversation with Damon. The topic was Christmas presents, so I actually switched computers to finish the conversation with D. Fuller sees URLs as part of advertisements or on packaging and asks to visit the sites (um, no).
But joking aside, I love that Fuller can read and I cherish the reading aloud he does, because the joy it gives us both is more than I ever imagined. And watching Damon spend an hour or more reading about Dorothy, Tick Tock, and whatever other characters live in the Kindle also brings me joy.
So, I say bring some more joy into your life. Read out loud to someone today, and celebrate bringing literacy to the world.
