Reading is something I’m passionate about and before I even became a mother I knew that was something I wanted to share with my kids. My oldest three children are boys though and that comes with a few challenges. Nationally, boys consistently test lower than girls on reading assessments. The learning gap widens as boys move into middle and high school. These books are a sure way to help your boys discover how truly awesome reading can be.
Thanksgiving is a great time to teach kids about the origins of the holiday. We have a collection of Thanksgiving books that we have enjoyed over the years and we try and find a new favorite every year. Reading historical facts in story form is a great way to learn and helps kids develop a passion for history at the same time.
Reading to preschoolers can be a challenge. They have short attention spans that often don’t last the length of a book. So what do you do when you have a wiggly preschooler who just won’t sit still though? Sing a book to them!
I’m not much of a singer but my kids have always been mesmerized whenever I sing one of their favorite books to them. There are some great books available set to some of your favorite tunes that are easy and fun to sing to your preschooler.
