Do you read? Out loud?

Try it one of these days.

We do.  To our girls, and to each other.  Yes, all our girls can read by themselves as well, but we still read books together, primarily at night before they go to bed and on lazy weekend afternoons.


It’s a wonderful thing.  When they were little, we read picture books.  The older they got, the longer the books got.  By now we have been reading through a lot of books together, more than once in many cases, and it doesn’t look like we are going to stop doing it any time soon.

The pictures show a little glimpse of the kind of books we have been reading.  Many more we got from the local library.  If you are not in the habit of reading out loud, to your children or your spouse or your siblings or your friends, try it one of these days.  The mind and the soul need nourishing food, too, you know.  How better to enjoy it than in company?
