    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...

    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.

    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
