reading at quiet time. I still like to read ABC and number books with him and have found a few really great options for children JQ's age. Gathering The Sun by Alma Flor Ada is a beautifully illustrated alphabet book based on California's agricultural workers, Chicano culture and the work of Cesar Chavez. This book is in both English and a perhaps a more advanced Spanish level. I have a special fondness for this book and hope that my children grow to appreciate it's meaning beyond its depiction of the alphabet.
