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!

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'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.
