Is reading a girly activity?

Is reading a "girly" activity? Not according to Jeff Robinson. See his defense of why reading is also for boys.

I'm so thankful that my son Dylan loves to read. He's only 3, but he's already content sitting on the couch, or on the bed, or on Mommy or Daddy's lap and looking at books for long periods of time.

I hope that Heidi - though already more active than her brother - will find a love for books as well. Last night, she sat on the floor playing with some board books and trying to eat them. I guess that's a good start for a 9-month old.

  1. I sure hope not. I spend hours at a time with my nose in a book. What would that say about me?

  2. Have no fear. Readers are perfectly secure in their manhood!
