My Children Like to Read

I’m so thrilled that my children enjoy reading as much as I do.  My four-year-old and my seven-year-old daughters both beg for books.  We go to the library about once a week, and they usually like to sit down right there and start reading their books before we even check them out.  My seven-year-old loves the bookmarks that the librarians sometimes have on hand for children, and she’s very proud to mark her place in a chapter book.  We allow them to stay up for a specified amount of time in bed before “lights out” each night, so that they can read.  My oldest usually turns her lamp out when she’s supposed to, but then we sometimes catch her still reading by flashlight.  She usually starts and ends each day with a book.
