"The whole world opened to me when I learned to read."
Mary McLeod Bethune
For The Boy, it was Diary of a Wimpy Kid... the book that hooked him indefinitely on reading. The Girl has at last found her hook, The Time Cat. She reads aloud to me little snippets that she finds especially beautiful, and when not reading, talks eagerly of returning to her book. She carries it with her wherever she goes, in case there is a "moment to read".
