A welcome break

Quote by Emily Dickinson: If I read a book and it makes my whole body so cold no fire can ever warm me I know that is poetry.

Night Whispers
(intimate child/parent conversation)

How important is it that I read?
No other creature can.
Why do you care if I read?
It is a skill unique to man.

Why bother to make sense of words?
You'll unlock the mysteries of life.
They're hard. I stumble and fail...
I'm here to ease all your strife.

I love when we curl up together
Our books make our friendship run deep
Your voice makes the book much more special
Go choose one...I'll read you to sleep!

When we read our word is at peace!
