There is a magic that takes place when a parent pulls a child close to read to him. I always love that time of wonder with my own children and grandchildren when you watch a child's eyes as the book opens up the world to him, giving him new concepts and fresh ideas. There are three participants in the time of transformation: the child, the parent, and the book.
I want to be part of that magic--to invite myself into that relationship between parent and child--to tread lightly on that sacred ground. I want to be part of those memories, part of that mind-expansive time with the books I write.
For now I am content to experience the magic moments with my own children and grandchildren. And, after all, that's the time that will last through eternity.
Take a minute and read a book to a little person this week. It will add magic to your life.
