I Packed My Preschooler's Suitcase . . .

If your preschooler tends to be wary or reticent in new places or situations, or if he gets overstimulated easily, be sure to pack some of his favorite books to take on vacation. Whether you will be the one reading him a bedtime story, or it will be a relative or babysitter, a familiar storybook and a beloved toy may be just what he needs to feel at home.

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.
