Betsy, Tacy, and Josephine

At Christmas, Josephine was given a copy of the Betsy-Tacy treasury by her Aunt Sandra. On one day in March 2012, it became one of her favorite books. 

For almost an entire Sunday, she was captivated by the book. I read her and Sam about 80 pages out-loud over the course of the day. When I wasn't reading it, she was looking at it. 

When Sam was on the merry-go-round, Josephine sought out a quiet space to read in the sun. 

No matter where we were, she was reading the book. 

Watching my daughter become a reader makes me happy. I am hopeful, so hopeful, that she loves books and doesn't grow up entirely reading screens. Thank you, Auntie Sandra! r
