Many years ago, as young mother, some of my favorite memories are reading to my children.
Every night when it was time for bed, my kids knew the routine of my husband and/or I reading books to them before bed. One of their favorite books became, Goodnight Moon by Maragret Wise Brown. Quickly it became a routine of having to read this book every night to my kids. Even if we were reading other stories, we always finished with our favorite. We all had it memorized, and even though my children couldn't read at the time, they new exactly when to turn the pages.
This book has had the biggest impact on me because even though my children, now 16 and 11, are growing up, I still remember reading this book to them every night. This book helped foster a love of reading in our family and created memories that will last us all a lifetime.
