Most homeschooling parents I know are book lovers!  We can’t imagine not reading and long for our children to enjoy the same.  Truthfully, in 13 years of home education, I don’t think any ‘lesson’ has brought me greater joy than watching the light-bulbs come on with reading.  One of my children picked it up so easily I couldn’t believe there were any illiterate folks in the world.  The other child struggled.  Years down the road, the one who struggled is a voracious reader and the other will read if there is no other option.  Interestingly, the child who learned to read the words found comprehension far more complicated.  This is just a brief little piece to encourage those of you in the throes of reading instruction.
