A reader is born

She heard the same voice
before she ever arrived,
reading and reading

her big sister’s voice,
kindergarten booklover,
reading and reading

see how she listens
and looks toward the pages
—a reader is born.

My granddaughters: Scout, age six, reading Bible stories to Micah, age three months

  1. Yes!!! Wonderful. Lullaby and Kisses Sweet from Lee Bennett Hopkins was a perfect board book. Do you have it? Also if you look in your email, sending a couple of poems my newborn grands loved. A special favorite is Frog by MaryAnn Hoberman. Along with Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening.
