George Grant on Reading Aloud

Reading aloud together has been a staple of our family experience, and I only wish we did more of it. I just came across a good article by George Grant on the value of reading aloud to your children. Here is an excerpt:
Adults who wear business attire and behave perfectly appropriately in steel and glass towers day after monotonous day transform themselves into snakes, mean old hags, princesses with snooty accents, and sorrowful baby bears when a small child is snuggled on their lap with a good book. Is it any wonder that a happy child’s evening litany includes “Read one more book, please?”

The whole piece is not very long and well worth reading. Make time for reading with your children.
