Weekend read for the kids!
When I discovered I was pregnant with Elliott, my first baby purchase was a children’s book. That might explain a lot about the number of children’s books we have in our home. And while I’m not going to start lecturing on the importance of reading to your kids (IT’S REALLY IMPORTANT), let’s just say I practice what I preach in the reading department. As a teacher of middle schoolers, I can pretty much tell if my students were read to as children or not. And I carry that reminder home with me everyday which means my daughters read books frequently.
For Ellie’s birthday last week, half her presents were books. And not presents from us, but our friends and family. We just love us some books. And so I thought I’d share what Ellie is loving right now and what I’m reading a lot of since she’s loving it but can’t actually read yet (slacker).
