365 Snap Shots of Life Blog Challenge: Day 61

Reading is fundamental to a good education. Homeschooling allows kids to explore the wonderful world of books on their own and at leisure. I’ve yet to meet a home schooled kid who says they hate reading. On the other hand, I’ve met countless of public school kids that hate reading and they associate reading with school only. I once had a small group of my kid’s friends over at my house and they asked me what I was working on. I told them I was writing my first book and they wanted to know more about it. I had an excerpt of the book printed out and I asked them if they’d like me to read some. There were some takers, and others said,” But this isn’t school.” WOW! that was an eye opener for me back then. I find it amazing that in many homes today, people have more shelves filled with DVDs than with books. I know about the Kindle and all of those devices that can store a gazillion books. However  I still believe nothing beats the feel of holding a book in your hands and turning the pages.   Get ahold of that book you’ve been putting off and read it today!

Let's Read!
