B is for Books

Books, books books! I love books, and my kids love books! 

A minute to brag, both my children learned to read by the age of three! The youngest learned to read before she learned to talk, that's how we got her to talk. She had a severe speech delay, and then she was a little parrot 

Now twice a week I go to the school to read with my youngest daughter and one other child from her kindergarten class. We then go let them take a test on the book that we read that day. I read to them, and they read to me. The child with her typically models how to ask for help, and how to slow down so someone can understand you.

We have hardback, paperback, and digital books. We love books. The kiddo goes to bed with books, several that she prefers to read out loud to herself and her stuffed animals. Books are amazing things that feed the imagination and inspire learning. 

Surround children with books, make them fun. Read with them, ask them questions and let them tell you the story without the book. History, science, fairy tales. All of these are found in books, let your child enjoy them. Don't forget to enjoy them yourself.

When is the last time you took the time to read a book?

The idea of being able to work from home again was one I had all but given up on until I determined that it was and is the only way to ensure that I achieve everything I need to achieve in a given day. I found help to renter this world from a friend.
