I have been working hard to take my own medicine this summer.
Caroline continues to re-read and re-read and re-read. I would say for every ten books she reads, she’ll throw in one new one.
I always talk about the importance of ‘just reading.’ Of letting children decide what to read for pleasure. Of taking any and all pressure off of reading.
I promise I haven’t said anything to her. Not directly at least.
Perhaps though, all the library books that appear on her bedside table were hint enough.
The other day she said to me, “You know how I am always re-reading. Well, each time I read a book, I read it from a different point of view.”
Oh fine then. What’s a mom to say to that?
