Dear Santa

An email from my sister-in-law:

"I thought you would get a kick out this story.  Tonight when we were winding James down for bed, we asked him what he wanted Santa to bring him.  We were expecting him to say something like a new transformer or some other type of action figure.  He said "I would like all the books in the world from Santa"  Johnny told him it would take us forever to read all the books.  So James answered back, "we can build a castle with the books"!!!  At least we know he loves books, and thanks to you guys for getting him so many books and reiterating to us how important it is to read to children when they are young."

Made my day!

That is cute story. Books are so important. Build a castle with books. I love it!

I am new to book blogging and took up the challenge over at Mother Reader to make comments on 5 blogs a day. So here I am

I taught Middle School history for 5 years and I used reading all the time in my classroom and my 4-year old likes to sleep with books, it's like sleeping with a teddy bear for her.
