I spend more time at the library than you can imagine (and not just for story-time with my kids, either) so these pictures sorta represent a day-in-the-life for me.
I'm always trying to surround my children with this atmosphere.
I want my children to love words and reading. It's the key to so much, don't you think--that ability to immerse yourself into an author's point-of-view and open your mind to new ideas, then filter what you've read through your value system.
Mark Twain said,
"The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who cannot read them."
I love when my children ask me to read to them...that they're excited about what might happen on the next page. I never want them to lose that wonder that comes from rustling the pages of a good book--the awe of new places and people that the written word can bring to their minds.
This is a great video about why my generation supposedly thinks books are boring.
Make sure to watch it to the end. It will surprise you.
