Priceless


"Once you learn to read, you will be forever free." ~Frederick Douglass


"Many things we need can wait. The child cannot. Now is the time his bones are formed, his mind developed. To him we cannot say tomorrow, his name is today."~Gabriela Mistral


"There are many little ways to enlarge your child's world. Love of books is the best of all."~Jacqueline Kennedy


"To learn to read is to light a fire; every syllable that is spelled out is a spark."~Victor Hugo, Les Miserables


"The good of a book lies in its being read. A book is made up of signs that speak of other signs, which in their turn speak of things."~Umberto Eco, The Name of the Rose


Books are lighthouses erected in the great sea of time.~E.P. Whipple

It's so great to see a child enjoy reading!

So nice to see children reading. I cringe when seeing children doing nothing but play video games or watch TV. I love both myself, but a good book is far more fun and interesting.
Lovely quotes.

Great pictures. I'm in agreement, CW I think will be my reader. I could read to him for hours. Ivan is still small but he has started requesting it.

Priceless is right. :) There's nothing more wonderful than a good book, and even better is a child who loves to read!!

Such a great post and photos! Reading is one of those things that happens slowly then you take off! I bet he has seen you read a lot and his grandma so he knows that reading is a great thing.

It has been so much fun watching Lucas grow up through your blog. I just heard a surprising (to me at least) statistic. On the radio there was a report stating that the "average" Canadian did not read any books for pleasure last year. Being an avid reader, that is so hard to understand. I always have a book or two going just for the fun of it and to learn new things. I would hate not to be able to read for pleasure. - Margy
