In an age of ever increasing technology and instant gratification, our family takes time out each night to read! Each one of us enjoys that time. Stories take us to far away places, engage our imagination and give us a shared experience, in addition to all the benefits of reading. Whether we are reading a library book about science or geology or a fiction book about dragon masters, we exercise our mind and create the visions the author has constructed for us. I hope this tradition is something my son shares with his kids in the far distant future. It definitely brings us together as a family on a daily basis - wherever we rest our heads.
