Nana Karin and Grandpa Steve (Papa or "Bapa" as Ava calls him) are voracious readers. This extends to reading with their grandchildren. The kids love a good book and the fact that Nana and Papa will read with them for hours delights them to no end. Ben can especially lose himself in a book, easily mesmorized by a story. Lily asks question after question. Ava has started to read to herself, turning the pages of her favorite books and babbling. I know this is the beginning of a lifelong pursuit.
