Read Early, Read Often

Reading aloud to children has been called the single most important activity. The best time to begin reading to your child is when he or she is an infant. Did you realize if you spend an average of 1 hr. reading and talking to your child daily, their vocabulary will increase by 8,000 to 10,000 words?

Here are a few of our favorite board books:
Tickle, Tickle by Helen Oxenbury
Trains by Byron Barton
Do you want to be my friend? by Eric Carle
My First Mother Goose by Tomie Depaola
Time for Bed by Mem Fox
I Like it When by Mary Murphy
