Oh Happy Day!

Isn't it such a happy day when you find a yummy cup of cocoa/coffee/tea and a great book?!  Even better, isn't it a really happy day when you see a child enjoying a book?!  For me, that is one of the happiest times.  

I love watching children read and learn.  That look when they figure out the word, find the answer, or simply read the punch line is priceless!  I've watched this little one enjoy stories read by her family and now I have the joy of seeing her learn to read.  Yes, there are struggles over those "cheater" words, but there is so much happiness when the word finally comes to light!

Lu's favorite stories usually include dragons, kings, castles and all the other mystical fun of fairy tales.  The quote in my LO by Gaiman is "Fairy tales are more than true; not because they tell us dragons exist, but because they tell us dragons can be beaten!"  What a fun and uplifting sentiment for readers of all ages.

Where else can a little girl find so much adventure, beauty and fun?
