I used to do this when I was a child, and got yelled at because mom said I'd ruin my eyes. This was a nice story that warmly shared of your family's love for reading.

Sounds like my house too. A little editing work needed but a nice story all the same.

This was really cute. Remember that apostrophes are only needed to show possession, and are not needed for plural forms of words. I love how you really captured each of your children's personalities.

How fortunate your children are to grow up in a reading family!

FYI--It's not necessary to start with your word count; the judges take care of that. Just start with your charming story, and draw your readers in with a great hook.

I could hear the dialog as I read; you wrote it with great authenticity.
