Mommy Julia Roberts Shows Reading Can Be Fun in Allure

I was thrilled to see Julia Roberts open up about motherhood and making family a priority in the March issue of Allure. The spread offers a sweet look at the "Domestic Goddess," (that's Allure's caption, but judging her down to earth demeanor it suits her) and manages to sneak in this beautiful photo of the mother of three reading Munro Leaf's classic book Reading Can Be Fun.

Leaf is known to most as the author of the controversial children's book The Story of Ferdinand, but published about 40 kitschy guidebooks for children in the '30s and '40s, many of which have been reprinted in the last few years. The series, which includes Manners Can Be Fun, Brushing Your Teeth Can Be Fun, How to Speak Politely and Why, How to Behave and Why and Reading Can Be Fun (all about $15), features stick-figure illustrations and wholesome, verse-y text aimed at teaching children the rules of thoughtfulness and etiquette. I wonder if Julia and Danny read the series to little Hazel, Phinnaeus and Henry before bed.
