Brookline Patch Column: Reading Is Fundamental, Indeed

Take a break from April Fool's on the Internet and read something serious instead!

Well, only slightly serious.

Yes, it's our latest The Brookline Parent column for Brookline Patch:

Reading Is Fundamental, Indeed

In this column, I discuss how foolish I felt when I started to read to the kids literally from the day they were born...and how reading to them has paid off, even though they're still so young.

Click the link, if for no other reasons than to see an adorable picture of me reading to the kids from one of their favorite books, SuperHero ABC, and to discover the truth behind the apocryphal story of how Marvin Minsky organizes his own books.
