1. The basket of books from which Audrey can choose which book to have her brother or sister read is a basket full of carefully chosen-by-me books, so she will hear the stories I have on her literature list.
2. The 3 oldest kids get practice reading aloud.
3. Audrey is occupied while I am having some one-on-one academic time with one of the older children.
4. If but for a few minutes, Audrey is experiencing some quality time with her siblings.
