Yesterday, as I was going through my children's books trying, and failing, to weed some out, I wondered to myself if having all of these books actually impacted the children. If it expanded their world? Enriched their imaginations? Broadened their vocabularies?
Literally, two minutes later Grace came in to show me a piece of writing of hers that she found while cleaning out. She had modeled it after the book, "Dear Mr. Blueberry" by Simon James. I didn't wonder anymore.
