(Non-Fiction - Bibliophile Memoir) Alice Ozma and her father read together every night for most of Alice's childhood and adolescence. They don't stop reading each night until she leaves for college. Do you feel the warm fuzzies yet? Her father, a frugal and jovial school librarian, is an inspiration to me, a new mama. He fights tooth and nail to serve his kids, at home and in the library. He wrote the beautiful introduction to her book, and he read to his daughter every single night, for pete's sake! This book is an inspiration to spend time with your kids away from the internet, away from your phone, and encourage your children to spend some time reading with you. It seems that just by being available to his daughter on a nightly occurrence, they were able to establish a strong, lasting relationship.
