Susanna Discovers the Joy of Reading Chapter Books

This morning I found 6 year old Susanna curled up on the sofa reading “The Boxcar Children”. It is such a joy to see a child enter into the quiet world of books and watch them sail away to distant lands and adventures. To get them started I read the first few chapters then  leave the book somewhere obvious. I’ll usually come back and find the book in their eager hands.
