It's Not Always Easy

Over at Booklights, Susan talks about some of the struggles involved in reading aloud to her son.
When he was younger, he wouldn't hold still for anything, let alone a book. He wiggled. He squirmed. He was totally uninterested. It was tough on a parent like me who had been waiting for years until she had kids of her own to read to. It was hard not to feel like I was doing something wrong.

All kids develop differently, even when it comes to reading aloud.
She goes on to give a few pointers and reassurances. Don't miss the comments, where some other parents share their own travails and advice.
