Was there nothing more supreme than snuggling down beneath the poofy down or fuzzy blanket, sipping cocoa with marshmallow, and listening to Mother, Dad, or a beloved elder read to us from our favorite story books as we settled in for a nap or a full night sleep? Is there nothing as rewarding as the feeling of nostalgia reading those same story books to ourselves just to remember how it felt? Or when we read to children to give them the same feelings we once so delighted in? Here are some of the finest story books for youths AND adults:
Research shows that when we read to children, they become life-long readers. –Miss McCulla
Winnie the Pooh ? Delightful story, though full of nuances and symbolism.
Alice in Wonderland ? The adventures, the originality, the fervor for language and logic make this a classic on the must-read books list.
The Giving Tree, The Missing Piece, Where the Sidewalk Ends, and any Shel Silverstein. In their utter simplicity, Shel Silverstein’s books are inspirational.
I Love You This Much, the most simple of books, will make you cry. Books like The Nancy Drew Mysteries Series will intrigue. And the Harry Potter Series; for kids, teens, and even adults; will bring other worlds alive.
Reading to children leads children to be life-long readers. Some become writers. And do yourself a favor. When you can, browse through the children’s book section at your local bookstore or on your favorite online book store. You’ll chortle, you’ll cry, you’ll swoon and maybe even wish you were a kid again, climbing underneath the covers and settling in for the perfect part of the day.
