Today is day 6 of the Gratitude Challenge sponsored by Brenda of Garden of Learning. It has been really great to think about what I am thankful for, both large and small.
For today, I am grateful for: toy catalogs. Yep, you read that right, toy catalogs. My first three kids learned to read and haven’t put a book down since. But, my youngest Rebekah, is a “reluctant” reader. I say that because she can read, and read very well, yet she does not like to read. So about a week ago we started getting toy catalogs in the mail. (I am thinking it has something to do with Christmas coming soon.) Well, Rebekah has had a toy catalog in her hands constantly. She is beginning to drive people crazy reading all the descriptions of every toy. She also keeps a paper beside her to add up the cost of everything she wants. We have even found her at night, lying on the floor in front of her door using the hall light to read the catalogs some more.
Thank you Lord for toy catalogs that have inspired my reluctant reader.
