don't fake it
. If you're not digging it, pick another book or another time -
when an adult reads in a sulky I'd-rather-be-doing-anything-other-than-reading-to-you voice. Kids know
what that tone means, and it breaks them.
Don't rush. Why would you want it to be over soon?
You're pouring words into a kid's
open greedy brain
. Make it last. Five minutes more equals hundreds more words
for building dreams and castles
If it's funny,
is being a silly old bastard or
has gotten too ridiculous to stand, don't press on through the text - drop the book on the floor and roll around on the couch laughing. Don't you want to have that memory from your own childhood? Do me a favor and give that to a kid you know.
I like it!
