We are only on chapter 5 of Harry Potter, but it is amazing seeing the transformation within Amelia when it comes to books.
Instead of asking for her mimi, bankbank, or simply stating “nini”, when she is tired, she now asks to be read to. We have always read to Amelia before bed, and she has always loved books, but seeing that she is so excited over a book, with no photos, just words and our voice, well it is absolutely heartwarming.
I am a firm believer in literature, and all the things it offers to people. From creativity to quietness.. from imagination to inspiration. All of these things I have personally experienced while reading, and exploring books, but seeing that transformation within my child, well that creates a joy within me that is unexplainable.
