From mrbrown's contribution to the event blog:
Reading to the kids is something my wife is better at but I am betterat the sound effects and funny faces.See also: mrbrown's post at his blog.
We’ve always believed in inculcating a love of reading to the kids. We both grew up loving to read too.
I told a few friends about the 10,000 Fathers Reading event. One of them emailed me: "If my dad hadn't drowned me with books, I don't think I would've loved reading as I do now."
She added that her dad used to bring her to one of the public library on his scooter every 3rd Saturday morning.
Parent's influence is so very important. And the kids will know it too, when they are older.
The event is tomorrow.
