Read to me
Reading to each other is something I really miss.
Adele Hamilton, Editor Parent24
I don't read to my children anymore.
Sounds like a dreadful confession, but at their ages (11 and 17) they would rather read to themselves. If it was up to me, though, we would sit around like characters from Jane Austen, reading to each other from amusing books every evening. Does anyone really do that?
I miss reading out loud, and them reading to me. I read to my babies from the day they were born, and the day they could read to me was a happy one.
Anyone want me to read Winnie the Pooh to them? I'll do the voices...
