100 Strangers-#4: Melissa and Brian


Sitting on the floor between the bookstacks at Barnes and Noble, Melissa and Brian were engrossed in a story. Brian, age four, who attends a neighborhood preschool, told me that he was going to learn how to read when "I'm a grown up." Until then he seems content to let Melissa read to him.

  2. Hello Kate! I'm sorry for not coming here as often as I'd want...I've been very busy these last weeks around my student children...
    Your portraits are so beautiful. I find quite difficult to shot people but I always enjoy when others do it!
    I have a French friend who married a Hmong man and they have been living in Minnesota for several years. Maybe someone on your photo is a cousin, who knows?

  4. Soon he will have to learn to read by himself. However, it's nice to have someone to read for you - at any age!

  9. I admire this mom. It's never to early to cultivate a love of a good bookstore with a child.
