Love Books - Inspirational Story as a Parent

You would think Tariq can read if you see this picture, but he really can't. But every night he will bring up a stack of books of his choice and we will read them to him. 

Once he mastered the story, he will start 'reading' himself. 

My dad had always taught us that the love for books must be developed way before our kids can actually read. It doesn't matter if they can't read right now coz if the love for books is there, once they are able to read, they will already have developed the passion for books and knowledge. And reading will be their natural habit.

Looking at Tariq, I can only imagine how happy my dad would be to see this if he is still around...
