Read Any Good Books Lately?

Sometimes you might feel as if you just need something new to read to your preschooler. One source of recommendations is your own network of friends. You have shared ideas for foods that are toddler-friendly, names of babysitters, a great new tumbling class, or sales on maternity clothes. It might pay to ask what your friends are reading to their children. Just the way you share ideas for books or movies you think your friends would enjoy, try sharing your favorite kid titles.

What I think . . .

There are all kinds of readers. Some—like my daughter and me—are never without a book to read for pleasure. Others—like my son—are careful, analytical, and curious readers who read primarily to seek information from the page.

No matter what kind of reader your child becomes, you can help him or her get started. After all, you are your child’s first teacher. And, best of all, you can have some fun in the process.

Please feel free to share your own ideas. Tell me about ways you've enjoyed reading with your child.
