Sometimes you don’t know things about yourself until you encounter a new scenario. There are the extremes like what would you do when faced with an emergency or crisis and then there are the somewhat moderate instances like what I plan on discussing today.
I have some rather vague memories of children’s books from when I was wee lad. I don’t remember having children’s books of my own but I do remember my grandparents having several Dr. Seuss books. My sister and I would “read” these though I think we were drawn more by the pictures than anything else.
Instead, we have a sense for what has proven valuable to our own lives. While it took me until my high school years to appreciate and become an avid reader, my wife was always in a book from a very young age. The story seems to be she memorized children’s books before she could actually read the words. There’s intrinsic value in reading. Most of all, I believe reading launches the growth and developing of the imagination. And if there’s anything I want for my son, it’s a wild imagination.
Call to Action: Does anyone have any children’s books recommendations? We have a small assortment right now but are looking to expand.
