Maybe there IS hope for the future generation of readers

A recent study for the National Center for Health Statistics says more youngsters are getting reading time. 60% of children ages 3-5 (and not in kindergarten) were read to daily by a family member in 2005, up from 53% in 1993.

I still read to my 12 year old nearly every night. Not sure what we will do about Harry. Kid will probably want to read on own time - otherwise it will take weeks!
