Reading is one of the most important skills needed to survive in today’s world. I try to help my children develop a love of reading because the more they enjoy reading, the more they will read. The more they read, the better they will become at it.
Reading skills are vital to people’s success at school and in adult life. If you cannot read, you cannot go on to higher education and valuable opportunities in the working world. Everyone deserves the opportunity to learn to read.
We develop a love for reading from a young age with our favorite Children’s Books.
My children range in age from 2 to 9 years old, so our home library has a wide variety of books that appeal to those ages. Some of their favorite baby/toddler books include classics like Goodnight Moon and The Very Hungry Caterpillar. My 5-year-old loves the Pete the Cat series, and my 9-year-old reads and rereads the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. We set aside at least a few minutes every day (or night) and read together.
