When I was part owner in a bookstore, I always had fun reading to kids during story time. Okay not always, but a lot of the time. I liked the way the kids leaned forward, from the floor, or from their tiny chairs. How they listened to the words, some with their mouths slightly open in anticipation. I liked the way their eyes grew larger, during the scary parts, and how they giggled, when the words were silly. I wish grown ups did more of that.
As for the cat picture, well, I’ve used it a few times before. It’s one of my favorite pictures and has absolutely nothing at all to do with the content of this post. It just makes me happy. Meow.
