Thanks Mom for letting me read gruesome fairy tales, and not worrying if they would warp me.
Thanks Mom for my first trip with Grandma to the downtown Carnegie library to get Mr Popper’s Penguins.
Thanks Mom for a million trips to the library, for books and book reports and term papers.
Thanks Mom for reading Every single day so I thought that was what everyone did.
And Thanks Mom for sharing reading with me, because everytime I reach for a book to enjoy or teach,
I think of you—-
