Leo is a bibliophile in a home full of bibliophiles. Once we had Leo assessed, it was suggested to us that we begin tracking what he reads for homeschooling purposes. It is often recommended that homeschooling parents maintain a book log. This is quite difficult to do, as Leo reads voraciously. He reads multiple books at a time, in multiple rooms, and he leaves them everywhere in his wake. He will finish one, cast it aside, and pick up another. It is not at all unusual for me to find a discarded book in my car, in my laundry pile, in the bathroom, in a closet, in the middle of a staircase…
|Did he walk up to that point reading it? I’m sure he did.|
It is what you read when you don’t have to that determines what you will be when you can’t help it.
