Spring Has Sprung

Shake up your reading routine. If the weather permits, pack up some favorite books and enjoy a spring afternoon with your preschooler, reading together on a park bench or under a tree. In many areas, the landscape is bursting with color.  Consider packing paper and crayons or markers and have your child draw some of the spring blossoms that have emerged. Let him describe to you what he sees, hears, and smells. Take notes.When you get home he can create his own book about an enjoyable spring afternoon.

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.
