Reading aloud is Edith Schaeffer's answer to fulfilling the needs of the inner drama queen in us homemakers.
She's right. And there's a bonus ~
We listened to a lot of stories on tape while riding in the car.
Fortunately, we had an hour-long one way commute to school and I capitalized on feeding the minds of my captive audience.
Just queried 23 y o daughter who allowed that her favorite from this time period was the Let's Pretend Show.
Book club hostess Cindy is the queen of *Morning Time*, a daily routine that follows Edith's formula for reading from three classifications (plus hymn singing.) It sounds like the Schaeffers did theirs in the evening.
I admit that we were no where close to achieving what is described in this chapter, but I believe I've reared a group of readers (as well as some drama queens.) That should be encouragement to the young mothers out there who think they're not doing enough.
It doesnt take as much and as long as we think.
Just a little bit every.single.day.
