B is for Books

Books, books books! I love books, and my kids love books! 

A minute to brag, both my children learned to read by the age of three! The youngest learned to read before she learned to talk, that's how we got her to talk. She had a severe speech delay, and then she was a little parrot 

Now twice a week I go to the school to read with my youngest daughter and one other child from her kindergarten class. We then go let them take a test on the book that we read that day. I read to them, and they read to me. The child with her typically models how to ask for help, and how to slow down so someone can understand you.

We have hardback, paperback, and digital books. We love books. The kiddo goes to bed with books, several that she prefers to read out loud to herself and her stuffed animals. Books are amazing things that feed the imagination and inspire learning. 

Surround children with books, make them fun. Read with them, ask them questions and let them tell you the story without the book. History, science, fairy tales. All of these are found in books, let your child enjoy them. Don't forget to enjoy them yourself.

When is the last time you took the time to read a book?

The statue was becoming discolored from the rain, green and blue blotches were everywhere. Frustration was taking its toll on the artist as he tried to match the original color with only an ounce left in the can. The feedback on the original concept had been mixed at best and now the rains had left him with a disaster threatening his career.

Hot Flash!

“No, it’s too hot.”
“You’re delusional, it’s fine.”
“Not it’s too hot.”
“It’s a tub of ice. It is a reach to say it is hot.”
She walked away and left him sitting there to think about what he was actually trying to say.

Flash in the Pan: Regress

Up, down, right, left.
The motion was making his hands numb but he was determined beat the game once and for all. The idea that he could not make it to the end of the level by the time they called him to dinner was unacceptable.
“Is that all he does all day, at 40?”
“What caused him to regress?”
“He knows he’s dying.”
What is he dying from would cause him to regress? Is he actually regressing or simply in denial?
The word is regress, this piece comes in at 65 of the 75 word limit. For the official rules visit the M3 blog and join in the fun.
