Written by Sherry "Gigi" Dubin
Reading to our sons was always something we loved and appreciated. It allowed us special time together. We enjoyed the conversations, the laughter, and the opportunity to talk. Those were times we relished, whether at the end of a long day or any other time during the day. Now we have the pleasure of reading with our grandchildren. Austin, Kaden, and Lyla are fortunate to have hundreds of books to enjoy...and enjoy they do. Although Lyla, at eight weeks, is not yet old enough to voice her favorites, that day will come soon. At almost four, Austin and Kaden have many, many favorites. They can quote portions from those books and even “read” along with us. We are not only bonding in a special way but we are building memories that last a lifetime. Research says that reading to children is one of the most significant contributors for future academic success. Perhaps all those wonderful times with our sons, and now with our grandchildren, had or will have an academic impact. Nevertheless, the joy and delight we feel as we share a book far outshines any research. It is this passion, this love for sharing books with our own family, that has always been close to our heart.
