With the holiday season fast approaching a lot of us are probably making some last minute contingency¬†plans for the next few weeks, except that most of us haven’t got that much to work with.

Our kids have already been to every Theme Park within a thirty-mile radius, been on almost every ride and visited practically every museum in town. So what next? Back to Basics, I’d say.

Let your kids discover the joy of reading for recreation. There are several good books out there. The key, of course, is to keep it simple. A novella , for a start, perhaps, and then, of course, you want to pick up a book, too. Nothing encourages a child more than to see his or parent doing exactly what he or she’s been asked to do.

So, pick up a book today, you’ll be glad¬†you did.

Happy reading!
