My Life In a Single Paragraph

On the perils of reading to children.

Nearly everyone close to small children has had, I would imagine, the experience of reading one of their favored books to them and getting something wrong - skipping or mispronouncing a word, or in some other way altering the text. Those who have made such mistakes normally take pains not to do it again, for they are not tolerated. The child will call out the error immediately, and the right word will be vigorously insisted upon. If such carelessness persists, the reader will be marked as unreliable and no longer permitted to serve in that capacity. - S.M. Hutchens
