Exemplify a Child

by introspekdt123

Every morning I rise I say a tiny prayer to the Mother/Father Creator thanking them for my blessings. There is one that I mutter a tad bit louder than the others and that  is grateful for  being able to do the things I want to do and especially for/with my children. One of those things is eyes on the prize, reading.

Everyday I read several books to Tiem. I have come to realise that while he enjoys it I,too, present pure excitement at the mere thought of reading for him and to him. It confirms my heart for literary works.

Anything and everything I will read. My favorites are drama, fiction, spiritual conquest, tarot/astrology, ancient spirituality, art theory and history, sociology texts, how to and self-help books. Recently I added children’s books to that list while dually adding them to my “things to accomplish in this lifetime” list.  I seek to produce books for children that are intrinsic, doting and revering. Books that speak to children on identifying feelings and the power of communicating them. After all, that is what I love to do; exemplify a child/people thru words. Most of the titles Tiem and I have thoroughly enjoyed so far are listed.If you love to read and want to develop reading children it is encouraged you too create and sustain a list of Mommy & Me (or Daddy&Me) BookLove list too!  As usual, Njoy!
