End of year special! That special photo you took of a child or children reading. Anytime in the past, present, or future (well till New Years Eve).

Am I reading it correctly when I read it as: "a child, or children, reading"?

Very clever, but I'd say that's a picture of a child NOT reading

My oldest was an avid reader from very young, so we've got a ton of great reading pictures





He even read to his brother





He read so much he had to get glasses!

And (as somebody around here's sig says), it's also important for "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse"

But no "reading" pics could I find. Still can't pass up the opportunity to show off the kiddies - for what it's worth they are working on their Wrighting skills

We have a long-running photo series of our kids reading in various museums (rather than looking at what they are museums of...). Here is a recent one of them reading at a local bonsai museum.

I dug this one up earlier, but had forgotten to post it. This was in 2014 on our decent to Uig to catch a ferry.

I'll count votes so we can get a thread for feb. either way i count....by order or just who is mentioned more... it works out to be a tie between whyfi and myself.
since i just did jan it seems fair to let whyfi do feb. I pm'ed him so hopefully he's around and will get it.
