My young son and I have made a habit of beginning our days with books. Reading is a central part of our little morning rituals, along with yoga, music and usually some yogurt.
We take turns choosing books and I always have him choose the first one. Today's selection was a compilation of short stories featuring an adorable little monkey. When we reached page 183, my son gasped and exclaimed:
"MAMA, look - the Twin Towers!
I wish I could have seen them for real.
People in New York are so brave.
I love New York City."
