…or should I say my alpha-listener? You see, I’m reading Armies of Nine to Miss6. She gets one or two chapters at night as her bed-time story. Now let me tell you, this is great for a few reasons. I get to share a story with my daughter. I get to spot problems and typos as I read every word aloud. I get to gauge the quality of the story by just how well she reacts to it — and that’s the most important bit.
She’s loving it. I mean jumping-up-and-down-on-the-bed loving it.
Sure I usually have to ask her to sit still while I read, but that’s for normal random 6 y/o wriggling. This is Tigger & Roo – type bouncing. That’s a pretty good inspiration for me. I mean, kids are honest. If they don’t like a story, it doesn’t matter who wrote it, they’re going to tune out. I think I’m onto something…
