I am about to make a nice hot cup of tea and watch an animated Christmas movie for children. I think we have a child's story book somewhere around here with the same title, which I can't remember quite. Something about Otter and the Jugband Christmas?? I used to read it to the children when they were small.
Its funny about reading. Our daughter wanted nothing to do with it. And then..when she was about 9? years old, became sick. I sat on the foot of her bed and read to her...I'm not sure if it was the Bobbsey Twins or the Happy Hollisters, but halfway through that book....she latched onto it and never looked back. Loves reading to this day!
On the other side of the coin, her twin brother reads mostly 'tech' articles & newspapers. Rarely any fiction for him. Who can tell?...how a child will bend. Genetics I'm sure...play a part in this. My Father was very interested in technical articles and was an excellent photographer, but wanted no part of fiction. My Mom, & her Mom & sisters, devoured fiction. I'm in this gene pool also...ha ha and love it. You know how good a good book is! I'm thankful for wonderful fiction and non-fiction. Its a world of its own. I feel relaxed just thinking about books!
