Reading has always been very important to me. When I was growing-up, I always had something to read; and I read everything I could get me hands on. For better or worse, nothing was censored. At the bookstore, I see so many parents censoring their children's' reading, even their older teens. That's amazing.
Now, there's a storey telling website: Mrs. P. Some television veterans got together and launched it. Mrs. P is like Pippi Longstocking, Mary Poppins and Mr.s Claus rolled into one. She's reading children's classics. Mrs. P is played by Kathy Kinney, who you may remember as Mimi, on the Drew Carey show! There's even a "magic dictionary", on a book stand, where kids can click to find the meaning of a word they aren't familiar with. Mrs. P is geared for ages 3-12 years. The site is still in beta, but worth checking out.
Mrs. P is eccentric, She's stable, but she's leading a really fantastic life. And People who read lead fantastic lives, is her motto.
