pregnant mom readingMost of us have had a mother, stepmother, grandmother, aunt or sister who helped raised us growing up. Sadly, my mother and grandmothers and all but one aunt have moved up to heaven.

Some of my best memories with my mother are of her reading to me. Whenever I was sick, she would read Robert Louis Stevenson's, "A Child's Garden of Verses" to me. Later on we shared books such as "Little Women". As an adult, we frequently read and shared books back and forth, especially Agatha Christie mysteries.

Some of my most precious memories as a mother with my own children are of times reading to and with them. I even read books such as Green Eggs and Ham to them while they were in the womb. Later we read everything from "Tacky the Penguin" to "Captain Underpants" to "A Wrinkle in Time". 

Research shows children who are read to learn and understand language and other communication skills faster andMom baby reading book image better. Now even parents of infants are encouraged to begin reading and singing to them. 

I sometimes wish my children would still come cuddle with me in bed so we could snuggle up and read together before bedtime.

To all of the mothers and the motherless children this year, I hope good memories of times like reading together brighten your day. Enoy a lovely, peaceful Mother's Day surrounded by the people you love. 

This little poem expresses well the value of a mother to me:

The Reading Mother

"You may have tangible wealth untold;
Caskets of jewels and coffers of gold.
Richer than I you can never be-
I had a mother who read to me."
     by Strickland W. Gillilan

God bless you!

Hi Michelle-I was lucky too in that my mother read to me. I think it's one of the best gifts we can give to our children.
