Literary Cuteness Overload: Kids Reading

We just can't be cynical about the cuteness of kids reading.

It’s wonderful to see a child absorbed in the world of a book, whether it’s a tattered old picture book covered in toddler smudges or a chapter book that keeps them reading past their bedtime.

Maya Angelou put it so well: “Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him.” We agree.

Plus, kids reading is just plain cute. We’ve gathered some of our favorite pics … literary cuteness overload!
