Photo Hunters~Important

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

What an interesting theme this week. I was stumped for awhile, then I had all kinds of great ideas, but NO time to actually take the photos. DARN IT!

So....I had to look back in my old photos for something that would work. I think I found a set of photos that are really IMPORTANT!

In my opinion, reading to children is very IMPORTANT! Experts say that how well a child does in school is directly related to the number of books in their home. We have just over 300 childrens books in the house of Living and Loving. Life is good!









Thank you for coming by my blog this week. I can't wait to see what other people found to be IMPORTANT! Have a great weekend!

*** oh and don't forget I'm on Top Momma!


CLICK HERE!!!!! You know you want to. Click it a few times in fact. I get a referral each time you click the link, and a click each time you click on Sugar's sweet photo. Isn't that fun? I can't think of a single thing I should be doing today other than clicking. Can you? ***

You are right, reading is very important. We have a large book collection too and I think it really helps the kids to appreciate reading.
Have a good weekend.

Siani said...

What a lovely interpretaton of this week's theme. Reading is probably the most important skill you can teach a child - your little ones are lucky to have parents who encourage them in this. Have a wonderful weekend!

Jenty said...

I love your interpretation of the topic! I haven't got mine up yet, have to do some more thinking.

Mama Zen said...

I LOVE these pictures! What a neat take on the theme.

jams o donnell said...

Absolutely right. Reading is one of the greatest gifts a child can receive. Happy weekend

Yen said...

You are surely right! We have a lot of books here too because I have a 5 years old who loves to read and play:) Lovely shots as well!
Will you come and visit me? My Photo Hunt is up as well;-) Happy Weekend!

Dear Corey,

You are SO right. My mother read to me when I was little, an I did the same for my kids.

I grew up in a home with thousands (literally) of books and our own home now is floor-to-ceiling with books of every description.

God bless and have a great weekend.

David

Tammie said...

Sorry. Deleted comment above was me. Posting wrong thing to wrong place again. Urg. See, reading is very important!

Anyway, just wanted to say I like the photos especially at such close-ups and angles.

Jo Beaufoix said...

Reading rules at our house too. And I was brought up reading The Hungry Caterpillar and my two love it now. Fab. x

A. said...

I couldn't agree more! Reading to children is so important, and I used to enjoy it as well. It's not a chore at all. Would that be The Very Hungry Caterpillar above?

Sarge Charlie said...

Autumn said...

So so important! I love snuggling up and reading to Bug. He is now reading simple books to me! Now that is a joy! Great post Corey!

Nap Warden said...

Wow, way to go with the theme...I bowed out this week (I was just to busy). Well done!

lynn said...

Reading is SO important when children are young and old. I loved reading to my children. I'd read to them now if they'd let me. They're 20, 19 and 16. lol!

I think kindness is important.

Lana G! said...

What a cute take on the theme! Reading is important!

Colin Campbell said...

Reading to our children is one of the most important things that we do. Our kids love to read and to have lots of books around.

Nice choice.

That's right! Starting to learn to read early is good for the kids. They're lucky to have a mom like you.

Linda said...

Reading to kids...VERY important. Great pictures!! Thanks for stopping by my blog!!

GHD said...

I couldn't agree with you MORE! Great picks for this week's pics :-)

Merisi said...

Corey,
I couldn't agree with you more!
Books have always played an extremely important part of my life, and I wanted my children to have that same force in their lives. I read to them from the very first months, I shlepped them to the little bookstores, and to the public library. When they got a little older, I took them to the Library of Congress.
I support to this day local small book stores that cater to children.

poor man's nicole richie said...

one of the good bonding moments happen when you read to your child.
kudos to you!

Liz said...

I agree that reading is very important. I have boxes of my children's books in the attic reading for any grandchildren that come along.

ispeakbeanish said...

Hey Corey. I so agree that books and reading to your child is important. My aunt is a school librarian and her license plate is: RD2URKD (read to your kid)

If you want to participate, I've tagged you for the seven things meme.

Michele (Rocky Mtn.Girl) said...

I love the way you put this post together and it is true, reading is absolutely necessary, very important and the sooner you start the better! Wonderful post!!

david mcmahon said...

Enjoy what remains of the weekend.

Childlife said...

Great pick - couldn't agree more! "Are You My Mother?" Gets a lot of milage at our place too : )

E! said...

I recognized the book where the worm eats through the fruit from when I was a little girl. My Grams used to read it to me! And you captured it so beautifully! I can't remember the name of it and it will drive me nuts until I do!

Hey it's Amy Shipp said...

What a cute post! I think you have talent as a photographer! :D

Sarcastic Mom (aka Lotus) said...

Hey, I just hopped by here, and I LOVE the photo in your header!
