Maybe it’s because his parents don’t. Do you read? Do you read to your kids? If you had kids would you read to them?
One of the very first memories I have is that of being read to by my parents. My young world was filled with books. I think this is one of the most important activities you can share with your child. What about you?
Even though I don’t have children of my own I read to the kids in my neighborhood and also run a “writers” group. They (and I) write stories to share with each other. Now that winter is coming I know we won’t meet out on my lawn much for this activity. I will miss it.
