It's the Little Things: Reading a good book on a cloudy and cold day.

She wanted to read the Anne Frank Diary. And several people questioned her choice. "Are you sure? It's too hard and not your level book." "Are you reading that book? Do you understand? Do you need help?"

I am glad that she was persistent. She said, "I am interested in reading that book. Could you please get one for me?" So we did. She spends 1 hour just to read 20 pages (way longer than her normal speed), has to stop to many times and use the dictionary to look up certain words and has to read slowly to really digest. But she is halfway of finishing the book and has been retelling the story to me. (Yep, insert mom's happy smile here).
