My children are growing up in a very full household. Often times, they may not get the full attention that they would like and compromising with siblings is something they have had to learn at a young age. As well as large classroom sizes, there is always someone around, someone needing something more then them.
While reading, my child gets to 'escape'. They can tune out the noise of the world. They can be the hero! While the love of reading can provide a child with peace, it warms mine more watching that happen!
