I love books. I learned to read at an early age so that I could escape the alone-ness of growing up as an only child in the country with no one else to play with. Hilary is also a voracious reader and as such our house is filled with books.
Liam struggled early on with reading and we feared that he would never find the same joy that we do in losing yourself to a great story. There is nothing better then curling up on the couch on a raining day with a good book where you find yourself swept off to far away lands.
Our fear has proven unfounded. Liam has developed a love for books and stories. It could be listening to me read out loud to him before bed, carrying his Ipod and speakers from room to room so that he can follow his current audio book, or the best one, him choosing to read a book over any other activity. He now reads above grade level and enjoys books of all styles and ranges. From Divergent to Stephen King's IT to his currently love of Warriors.
I'm so glad that we are raising a reader.
