Read Books to Children Starting at Birth

It has been a while since I have blogged here on my children's book blog. Yeah, I've been having too much fun this summer. I went on a little vacation and just enjoying the sun, friends, and family. I did still tweet and post on Facebook though. If you are not following me, please feel free to do so. 

I tweeted about enjoying summer too. Have you been enjoying summer? I hope so. Whether you are going on vacation or stay-cation, you got to take time to relax and recharge. You can always escape in a good book too.

Visiting with family and friends are so important as well. Sometimes I can get caught up in my own little thing, but I always try to make time for friends and family. I know I need to keep them first in life.

Did you know it's important to spend 15 minutes a day reading a story to your child, starting at birth until age 5? And then after age 5 or sooner they can read to you. I've posted a little bit about that on Facebook and twitter too. I want to write a whole post just about this important topic, but I just thought I would mention it now, because it's so important. Reading out loud, helps babies and children development their reading skills and build language, literacy and social emotional skills. There are even campaign groups out there promoting the read for 15 minutes a day too, which I think is amazing!

Well, perhaps this post is turning into that read to babies post after all. Maybe I should just link to some of the articles and you can read about it more for yourself. 

Here they are: Why It's Never too Early to Start Reading, Pediatrics Group to Recommend Reading Aloud to Children From Birth, and the Read Aloud 15Minutes campaign group. 

Do you already read to your child? Reading every night can also set a calming routine and bonding experience with you and your child too. Asking your child to choose a book themselves is exciting for them, but make sure you buy some children's picture books that you love too!

Enjoy your summer reading good books to family and friends!
