I went to the library today. The children's librarian was in the midst of checking in the books, and she was reading a picture book. Like, flat out, sitting there, flipping through a picture book. Thing is, when I would volunteer at the library, the other volunteers and I (3 people per shift, and we were always there together, so they weren't awkward strangers) would spend half our time reading the picture books. We'd take out little carts to the back room, fill them up, then sit 'for a break' and read a picture book. It got to the point where we were recommending books to each other ("oh, here, did you read this Fancy Nancy one?"). It was awesome.
My point is, y'all are missing out. Try some picture books once in a while. You'll find them to your liking.
