Today is World Book Day, also known as World Book and Copyright Day, or International Day of the Book, is an annual event organized by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization to promote reading, publishing, and copyright.

A couple of days ago, Aden posted the following question on facebook, “…do you read story books to your kids or do you write your own stories for your children?” He received some interesting responses:

Joy Mentor

My son is 6 years old I’ve been reading bed time stories since he was 3.. must say his love for books is amazing!! I’ve never thought about writing a story.. maybe it’s time!!

Samantha Menezes Fick

Both. Most, I don’t write down – I use what they experience and build around it to create a story with a magical moral of the day. All my boys have strong minds, great imaginations, and vocabularies that astound. We love reading … and talking aloud to ourselves

Frank Roman

My daughter writes own stories, finished her own book on fiction , no formal schooling as she was diagnosed with autism at young age

Claire Bear

Both! We often make up stories together- taking turns to add to the story as a family.

Renchia Johnson-Smith

My daughter writes her own stories. Quite an imaginary mind
