Experts say that one of the best things we can do for our kids is to read to them. From my own experience I have to agree. My mom read to us faithfully, often many times each day, a tradition that continued even into high school. (Of course by then we’d moved to grown-up books and took turns being the reader.) We shared so many wonderful stories together through the years.
That said, I don’t read to my children nearly enough. It’s not that I don’t enjoy it, because I do, but too often I get busy and let another day go by without reading to them.
I’m sure I’m the only one who would like to do better in this area (*wink*), but in any case, I’m issuing myself a reading challenge–and anyone who wants to join me. My goal is to read to my kids every day during the month of July, even if it’s just one book. (I know, I’m getting off to a late start. Bear with me.) So feel free to join me!
Now for the question: What is your favorite children’s read-aloud? Tell us in the comments!
Blueberries for Sal. I never get tired of this book!
