A child’s love of reading begins with parents exposing them to books before they go to sleep; it begins in family room where the television is off; it begins in the kitchen with simple recipes; it begins outside with a copies of much loved children’s books, and it begins with caretakers, parents and grandparents taking time out to be present, truly present, and read with a child. There is nothing I love better than the sound of an adult’s voice reading with expression to a child. Make your home a house full of words.
February is a month when love is celebrated, so make a point of giving your precious time to a child. The cost can be zero dollars, and the benefits can be infinite.
