My dad reading a book to My Buddy
I love to read. I read at every chance I get. I am the kind of person who will read the back of the shampoo and conditioner bottles. I will read anything I can get my hands on.
I got my love of reading from my parents. As a child, I remember going to the library with my mom. I remember getting my first library card. I remember how special (and old) I felt having the librarian scan my card and then scan the books. My. Very. Own. Books!
As I have grown older, I see my parents reading books. My mom used to read for fun, now she's reading text books. My dad reads finance books. He's always been a reader, the Wall Street Journal and business magazines. My dad has quite the collection and tries to get his kids to read these books as well. Maybe if I did, I'd be rich myself?
My favorite book when I was my kids ages was "Are You My Mother?" I am not sure who wrote it, but I loved that book so much I even wrote on the pages. It's about a baby bird who gets separated from his mother and goes around to a whole bunch of other animals asking them in they are his mother. He eventually finds his mother and she wraps him in her arms. It's a tender story that brings back fond memories of my childhood and why I love my own mother.
My Buddy has a book called "Hugs and Kisses." It's about a dog who gets up early one morning to see who has the best kiss. He kisses a duck, a pig, a horse, a butterfly, and a few other animals. When he finally returns home, his mother gives him a kiss and he decides that her's is the best kiss of all.
Just sweet books about mothers. I hope my kids feel tender feelings about me as their mother!
