I have the most wonderful sister.
I just received (another) book in the mail from her. And I can't wait to start reading it tonight.
My sister is two years older than me.
When she was six and I was four, she would come home from school and teach me everything she learned that day.
That's how I learned to read.
And I am a voracious reader. I LOVE to read. That and running..
One year, a few years ago, for my birthday, she sent me a book every month that she thought I would like.
That was a good year!
My sister is an English teacher, has been for years and years, in the public school system in Asheville, North Carolina. She helps (or tries to at least) get kids to understand the joy of books.
I love my sister.
