My father used to say that reading and music - or more precisely, appreciation and love for both - were the greatest gifts a parent could give a child. Indeed, my earliest memories are of my parents singing me to sleep, softly strumming their ukuleles. Sometimes Daddy would play "Red River Valley" or "Red Sails in the Sunset" on his harmonica.
