When the alarm rang out at six a.m. this past Saturday morning, I groaned and rolled over and groggily turned it off. There was much to be done. Thanksgiving hasn't yet arrived, but behind the scenes, Santa's little helpers are being called into action to ready for the holiday season.
The Gift of Reading
When I say that I believe reading is a gift, it is a message that comes from my heart. The joy–and even sorrow–that comes from a book can be a comforting companion. The emotions and thoughts they provoke unrivaled. It is something that I want all children (and adults) to experience. It is why you will always find books underneath our Christmas tree each year.
