Reading -

I'm finding that my girls enjoy reading - YAY!!!!  We read every night. 

Not because No Child Left Behind has made teachers harass kids into reading constantly, but because I read and always read to them since they were babies.

I'm finding that my children enjoy learning not because every day they are given reading drills and told how to fill in the bubbles ..  But because we tell them stories about Anne Frank or Crazy Horse - or they watch their dad experiment with his beehives or the beer bubbling in the basement. To me, this is more important than any achievement  in a standardized test.
