Brains and Books
As if I needed another reason to read aloud to my family! The research done by Paul Zak (enjoy his fabulous Ted Talk) looks at story telling and the chemicals that our brains release (cortisol and oxytocin) when hearing a good story. On our trip to Dallas this weekend, I could hear Olivia (who is a strong aural learner) reading aloud to Katherine, and it made me happy to know that my girls are cementing their already strong relationship through shared stories. God made our bodies to do some amazing things!
