A Sadness Around Books

Just came across Vogue’s episode and just really got me I’ve 2 Autistic children who don’t like me reading to them so I’ve stopped reading as it made me quite sad. I had always imagined the books I would read my children and it’s not where we are at. But after listening to the episode it’s reminded me how much I liked to read and that I can enjoy it again I’ve order some of the books recommended. So thank you!!!
