When an adult reads to a child, it is more than just a simple activity. A bond forms between the reader and child, a bond of shared learning, shared exploration, and shared adventure.The kind of bond that lasts a lifetime. It is that bond that I hope to encourage with my children's books. Currently four in the collection, all beautifully illustrated by my brother Lanin.
