The Reading Promise: My Father and the Books We Shared

Have you set any New Year’s resolutions about reading each day to your children?  We read each day, at all times of the day, but especially before bedtime.  A very inspiring book, The Reading Promise:  My Father and the Books We Shared, by Alice Ozma, certainly reinforces our belief that reading is important in a family.  Alice and her father set a goal of reading for 100 nights, then extend that time, and end up reading each night until she goes away to college.  Alice recounts some of the books and what was happening in their lives in her story.  I found it very inspiring and touching!  If you’re already reading daily to your children, this story will resonate with you.  If you’re not making daily reading time a priority, then this book will inspire you!  Happy reading!
