    There is nothing more heartwarming than seeing the photos of young children reading, both to other children, or all by themselves. I also really like the cat perched atop the mountain of books! Great photos today!

    Love this! The girl and her dog — this reminds me of my younger self. I WENT WALKING was a huge hit in my family when my boys were young. Seeing it again is like revisiting an old friend.
