For me, it was actually always my Dad who read to me when I was little. And I mean REALLY little - I learned to read from him when I was like three, and from then on it was just voracious devouring of all printed word. They'd have to actually KEEP books from me for when we went on trips, because if they left me alone with it I'd finish it and have nothing to do on the plane / in the car. XD; My Mom wasn't much of a reader for the longest time, but *I* actually got *her* into The Cat Who... series, and we've read quite a few mysteries and YA fiction concurrently. :3 So a bit of a spin on the usual tale, hahaha.

I don't remember my mother ever reading to me...she taught me to read when I was two, so I was on my own since then. Both my fifth and sixth grade teachers read aloud "A Wrinkle in Time," and it remains my favorite. Hearing a book must settle it deeper in your heart.

Richard...I love that sentiment "hearing a book must settle it deeper in your heart"...I think that is so true...one of the real benefits of reading aloud to a child (or come to think of it an adult) is to strengthen the bond....particularly when children are younger and they curl up in your lap...sometimes I have several great nieces and nephews climbing all over me and each other when I read...and it creates memories for a lifetime...when my mom and sister and I would get together when she was well into her 80s and us in our 50s we would still spend a little time remembering and discussing the books she read aloud to us...
