What and where do you love to read?

Love of Reading
I love to read picture books to my nieces and nephew that my sons loved...Bunny Cakes by Rosemary Wells, Katy and the Big Snow by Virginia Lee Burton, Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey. I love to read aloud to children on the story steps or in the reading alcove, knowing their love of books is fostered in part by the work my teaching partner and I do with them. I love to read aloud to my sons by the light of a soft lamp in our library. I love to read engaging titles on the window seat in the sun on weekend afternoons. I love to read cookbooks, planning what I want to bake and cook. I love to read recipes written in my grandmothers' and great grandmother's handwriting, a legacy from them of my past. I love to read letters from friends and family...and reread them again later.
