Flex Time

Is reading at bedtime just not working for your schedule? Maybe you work nights or go to school and it's just not possible to make bedtime your regular story time with your preschooler. There is not just one “right” time to read. Perhaps you are home in the morning with your preschooler before he goes to school. Or maybe you bond at bath time, or lunch time. Don’t worry about what the clock says. The important thing is finding some time to enjoy reading together every day.

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.
