Storytime by Mirz123 Storytime by Mirz123
This is my entry for =seapuppy's contest. The theme is "Reading." [link]

There's still a few days left to participate. There aren't a lot of entries, so the odds of winning are good.

I have to admit, I wasn't going to enter this. Simply because I have already done various reading emotes and I didn't want to revamp one of those for the contest, since that would seem like a bit of a cheat. I had no other ideas, until yesterday. I thought it would be great to show an emote parenting reading a story to his/her kids. So, there you have it.

Static because that's what I've been making lately. Also, I thought it might make a nice website decoration.

This is so adorable, I love it. :lol:

If I have kids this is definitely something I'd love to do, read them stories while they're in their pyjamas and snuggled up on the sofa.

SO nostalgic, oh my gosh... I remember when I got read to as a little kid...

It's funny, in my AP English class, my teacher reads to us sometimes. at the beginning of the year he goes, "In this class, you will be read to, and you will color. Welcome to AP English."
Made me miss being little. I love it when he reads aloud to us <3 He's one of those people who has a nice reading voice. He read the last couple of paragraphs of The Great Gatsby to the class and when it was over, the room was dead silent, and you could hear everyone take a breath... like some sort of spell had been broken. It was so cool...

I have heard that kids actually comprehend more when being read to. Not to downplay the importance of reading oneself, but when you are just kinda listening and imagining and not having to struggle with word pronunciation and such, it's easier to absorb. And it's just amazing, too. We do that here, where one of us will take turns reading a book aloud to everyone. It's great.

exactly!!
that's so sweet. I love it that my mom also has a nice reading voice... someday I want to be able to read like that, I know it's not something many people aspire to do, but it's sort of important to me...
