I listen to Al Mohler’s podcast The Briefing almost every morning.  This morning he had an especially heartwarming final segment.  It was on the importance and benefit of reading to children even as they grow up.

In my home we are firm believers in the power of good literature and recently I’ve been reading the Chronicles of Narnia to my girls, aged 4 (and a half) and 6 (and a half).  (those half years are very important to them at their ages).  Seeing their faces shine with wonder is all the reward I need but there appears to be great benefits besides.

Listen to these five minutes (and if you have kids, read to them!)
