Song-osity: Own little world

In my own little corner, in my own little chair...
and the world will open its arms to me...

I remember, way back, when the school year began, we talked about what reading is to us.
One child said "reading is like a free vacation for my mind." Another said "reading lets me pretend I am whatever I want to be."

I couldn't have said it better myself.

And! Come link up and join the Good.Random.Fun. each Monday, right here!

I like the last quote the best, and writing does the same for me. I get lost in the words.

I so wish that more children think of reading that way. I feel so bad for those that think that reading is a chore.
