The love of books starts at an early age. I started my guys even before they were one with Pat the Bunny or books that they could feel.
It was a time to sit still, focus, and to turn the pages. They figured out that something was on the page for them to enjoy. The love of the book was more than the words; it was time to be together too.
As kids grow, books teach them about life, and open discussions between parent and child.
Wings and Feet is an opportunity to talk about what we would miss out on in life if we neglect to make friends with someone physically different than ourselves.
It's a good time to talk about friendships- how some last a lifetime.
All from reading a book - who knew books are this precious!
