A Love of Reading by Kathleen O'Malley Brown

A Love of Reading

What was my favorite book as a child? Reading any book for me did not begin until I was ten and in the fourth grade. Until then, reading was almost impossible because the words danced on the page.

From Winter to Spring by Cindy McKay, USEP-OHIO

From Winter to Spring

And so spring is coming. Digging into the snow mounded under a bush, I uncovered the tenderest little sprout of a spring flower with its head still curled under. I pushed the snow back over it, knowing it would survive with the warm blanket of white to protect it from the harsh March wind. But the memory of that tendril is sharp in my mind and reminds me to prepare! The spring is coming.
