She Reads!

It's that time of night.

We come indoors from out. We have just finished composting our dinner and raking the rocks in our Zen garden. Although we are already relaxed and connected with each other and the universe, we try to squeeze in a little reading. Because that's what the public service announcement on the television recommends.


Stella suggests, "Let's read Richard Scarry. He teaches us all about the world called Busy Town where animals and small invertebrates happily co-exist. We should all be so, what's the word, Gianna? Tolerant, yes."


Gianna is distracted by the love song of J. Alfred Ceiling Fan. His fancy grooves have seduced infants for generations. Softly but sternly instructing, so as not to wound Gianna's Spirit of Learning Stella says, "Gianna, stay on task, I'm trying to share with you the beauty that is Reading."


"That's more like it."

That is Forest's favorite book and on a recent visit to his parent's he confiscated it for our own children. Able Baker Charlie, he is the man.

"the love song of J. Alfred Ceiling Fan. His fancy grooves have seduced infants for generations." This is hilarious!!

My five year old loves Richard Scarry. We found a bunch of his books at a discount grocery store for $0.99 each. We have the whole collection.
