Shelve It

Smooth the way to a happy reading routine by making sure you can easily find the books you and your preschooler love to read. Preschoolers are notorious for lacking patience and, if you can’t get your hands on that one book your child is craving at that very moment, you might lose her attention.

  1. I like the consistent, helpful, and short posts you have on your blog. Thanks for linking to my post today!


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.
