Photo of the Week: the Young Reader

by Anna Blanch on June 16, 2010

She’s started early – and I couldn’t be happier! My lovely sister sent me this photo of my neice, Mia, yesterday because she knew it would make me, the book-lover of the family, smile. Apparently, it is one of Miss Mia’s favourite things to do, to sit amongst her toys and read her books. How much reading this 1 year old does exactly is up for debate but she is certainly vocal enough!

I may be biased but I think I have a gorgeous neice. It has been a joy to watch her develop and grow. Besides, her cheeky smiles are just pretty adorable. It’s also moments like this that simultaneously remind me how far away I am from home, and how technology can bring a little home comfort into my day!

Anna Blanch is founder of Goannatree, and a PhD candidate in the Institute of Theology, Imagination, and the Arts at the University of St Andrews, Scotland. She loves books and she’s besotted by her neice.

    I can see more than a touch of Blanch in the beautiful little face.
