Read something with your child. Not to teach them anything. Not to practice sounding out words or get an early start on learning to read. Just because sometimes there’s no greater feeling than sitting down, with a kid on your lap, looking at pictures and books together. Figuring things out together. Helping them explore the world of books. Even the kids who think they’re too old to be read to will stop what they’re doing, and linger, and usually sit down and listen.
Here’s what we’re currently reading together:
–Duck and Goose by Tad Hills
–Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse by Kevin Henkes
–Paddington by Michael Bond
–Rainbow Stew by Cathryn Falwell
–On the Banks of Plum Creek by Laura Ingalls Wilder
The nine and eleven-year-olds:
–The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare
