Reading is one of my favourite activities!! It is a chance to use your imagination, travel to other places (real or imaginary) and experience things you may otherwise not experience. I always remember my Mom reading — she always had a book in her hand. My Mom sparked my interest in books and reading and always encouraged me to read, read, read. I have fond memories of visiting the library with my Mom (and brother) and borrowing our favourite books over and over and choosing new books to enjoy. We always read together as a family. Now we still share book recommendations and borrow books from each other. My Mom has continued to show her love of reading to my boys. Our “at home library” is always expanding and we always read together. Reading is one of my favourite things to do with my boys and we spend hours reading together. My Mom helped spark this love of reading that I’ve had for my whole life and now share with my boys!
