I love this quote from the article, “she always had at least two or three books going for her own personal enjoyment. I always saw my mother reading. I got the example from my mother that reading is an important part of the human experience”
This is something that I struggle with as a parent. I read all the time at work or while I am traveling for work but not much at all while I am home. If I am, I am reading articles and things on my phone. Literacy is crucial to the development of our children and I respect how Mr. Burton sees the value that digital devices can play.
