Anytime, I used to read 4 books a week when my daughter was little. When bedtime came and we were tucked in, I read to her, then I would read for an hour or so. My Mother always said and still does that, "If you have a good book, you will never be lonely". She was right and I love books and I guess my laptop takes the place of books these days. If children can learn the value of reading and do it well they will excell in school to great extents. If not learning is a struggle and I know all of you know that. I say anytime you get a chance, take the book to the Dr's, Dentist, in the car, if it doesn't make you dizzy....It will make you a happier more well rounded individual. I must get to that Hub I was planning in my head!!! Great question. gregrium.
