little reader

i realized that i hadn't seen or heard sawyer in a few minutes.
that's not good.
i went looking.

this is where i found him.

on the floor with a pile of books around him.
pointing and "saying" what he was seeing.
i ran and got the camera...crawled across the floor and took it all in.

Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.
~ Joseph Addison ~

Reading is a basic tool in the living of a good life.
~ Mortimer J. Adler ~

Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be
chewed and digested: that is, some books are to be read only in parts,
others to be read, but not curiously, and some few to be read wholly,
and with diligence and attention.
~ Francis Bacon ~

If we encounter a man of rare intellect,
we should ask him what books he reads.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~

I would be most content if my children grew up to be
the kind of people who think decorating
consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. (1993)
~ Anna Quindlen ~

joshua almost didn't have time to eat lunch before he had to catch the bus because i totally lost track of time in our little world of books!
