reading now: The Woman In Black
The writing was too good to stop besides I didn't see the whole thing and it was a long time ago.
Now, I read a lot because I love to but I am also aware of the example it sets for child. Last night when I was reading wanting to encourage Boo to read to herself I didn't offer to read to her I simply keep on reading my book. After awhile she asked me to read her a sentence so I did. A while later she requested another and with that she gathered some of the plot and setting. Seeming genuinely interested I read her a few pages giving her more background when needed.
It is safe to say WE are now reading this classic chilling tale together! And when I went looking for a cover pic to use I found the 2012 Movie with none other than Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter!). We might have a scary movie to watch together too.
