My boy can’t stop reading. I never thought that I would say those words but I am. I LOVE it. Actually, the situation is quite humorous. Sawyer
loves lives to read. She reads all the time. The boys find her love for reading quite annoying. They want her to play and to finish her school work so that she can play. Of course, she gets so engrossed in a story that she cannot stop.
Well, the situation has shifted a bit since Christmas. One of our family gifts was a Samsung Galaxy Tablet. Mainly, the tablet is used for school. The bonus of the tablet is that it is large like an ipad so that you can read on it as well. In the past, Sims would pick up a book to read occasionally, and he would listen to the book using Learning Ally on my phone. With the tablet, Sims can read the book and listen to it on the tablet. Not only does Learning Ally have the text available now, but the text is highlighted as it is read. I am excited that Learning Ally added this feature. I know that they have had it for a while, and we did not take advantage of it.
Now, we have house full of readers. Sawyer still loves the feel of a book, and she does read ALL the time. I cannot keep up with all of the books that she reads. Parks likes to use the kindle to read on so that he can make the print a little larger and a little more spaced out (this is they way that I like to read as well). An now, Sims is reading like a madman on the Samsung tablet. (In fact, the house is quiet right now with EVERYONE reading. Those are also words that I thought I would never say.”
