My mom helped me fall in love with reading. When I think back to when I was young, my mom always found time in her day to take some time for herself and read. I was excited when I was able to read independently. I remember peaceful, Sunday afternoons, snuggled up on the couch beside my mom reading together; she would be reading an exciting mystery or comedy, and I would be reading a Beverly Clearly, Ann M. Martin, or Judy Blume book.
My mom and I share our love of reading to this day and I hope to instill a love of reading for my kids just as my mom did for me.
