This is my sweet boy all cuddled up and reading to his bunny. It’s a rainy day in Vancouver and I thought I would share some facts about reading to your children.
I’m sure you’ve heard over and over again how important it is but I think sometimes knowing the facts can help. It has for me. I’m trying really hard to devote at least 10-15 minutes of reading a day to my kids. That doesn’t seem like a lot but that’s about as long as they’ll sit for right now. 😌You have to decide for your own kids what they can handle. Here’s the facts!
