    A Wonderful Way To End The Day.

    For over a decade now, I have been reading a bedtime story, most nights, to which ever child of mine was willing to listen. I have always felt a sense of accomplishment, to be able to sit and re tell a story, share in some magic, have some special quiet time, and then a kiss...

    I am re-reading Little Women.

    Its not really a "Children's Book" maybe, a young adult book possibly. I am staying with a family from church and I forgot to bring my books so I was given this to read and I am enjoying it again.

    I find Children's books really fascinating.

    Not only are they entertaining, but they are also quick to read and hold much more valuable information than a lot of adult books out there! I mostly enjoy Dr. Seuss books, his books will forever have a place in my heart <3

    The Chronicles Of Narnia

    I cannot put down that book! I am on the third story now. The author is such a good story teller. I love how comforting children's books are. They are simple and aren't as dramatic as novels.
