Reading to your children
When I found out I was pregnant, one of the first things I began doing was reading to my baby. Now, I know at that moment he was unable to hear me, but I wanted to get into the habit of it. After my son was born, I continued to read to him. At 12 weeks old, Jonah began to grasp the pages and feel them as I read to him. Now he gets excited and kicks his legs as I turn each page.
I believe it is important that children be read to, even before birth. I read at least 1-3 times a day to my son. He seems to like anything that rhymes or books with animals in them, but is not particularly fond of books with other babies in them. Lol
Some of his favorite books are: Humphrey Corner books (he has two so far), Nancy Shaw's books about zany sheep (he has three of them so far), books from The Dr. Seuss Club, and Bats at the Ball Game. One of my favorite books to read to him is: I'll Love You Forever.
I also want to begin reading bible passages and stories to him.
Do you read to your children? If so, what books do they/you enjoy?
