Don’t you just want to be in this child’s place. When is the last time you just lay there with a good book? It’s important to be protective of this gift to the children. They have the right to drift off into another place with a good book. Quiet time for 4 and 5 year old children can be noisy time to adults when the children are reading/pretending to read to themselves as they drift off to sleep. They are in all actuality reading out loud. They tell stories as they look at the pictures in the book. The story can be much more creative and/or interesting than the actual text. It’s a beautiful world that I get to live in!
