It is said that a person who reads lives a thousand lives, but a person who never reads lives only one.
Today, this phrase has never been more true.
Last evening I read my children the Hansel and Gretel story.
It is a well-known fairy tale of German 🇩🇪 origin, recorded by the Brothers Grimm and published in 1812. Hansel and Gretel are a young brother and sister kidnapped by a cannibalistic witch living deep in the forest in a house constructed of cake, confectionery, candy, and many more delicious treats that are imaginable. The two children escape with their lives by outwitting her... Anyways, today my son found little pebbles and retold the story to another neighbor child and off they ran to build a house, pretend to get lost, get a bucket to make an oven and sat there deciding who would be the bad witch. 😂
What better opportunity can we give our children than to live a thousand lives before they leave home all by reading 📖 to them - whether it be Bible stories, fiction or non fiction?
What was the last story you read to your child(ren)?
