All children seem to enjoy reading stories. They will sit and listen to a story that they have heard many times before, perhaps they have heard the story so many times that they have the words memorized. Still they are enthusiastic.
Given an opportunity they often grab a stack of books, hopefully this will prevent the reader leaving early.
This is special time for them. They have our undivided attention while we are something that they want to do. This is quality time.
So it is an important part of childhood - this unique interaction between them and mom and dad or grandma or great grandmama.
Nelda is the reader and she is a wonderful model of selfless service and love. Liam joins her to enjoy a good story.
