When my first three children were younger, I used to read to them in the evenings. It wasn’t always a regular occurrence, but over time I managed to finish entire books including the Narnia series by C.S. Lewis.
With Amanda, our reading time is usually at naptime. Not only is reading to her a valuable part of her development, but it’s also good quality time for just the two of us.
“I have never known any distress that an hour’s reading did not relieve.” ― Charles-Louis De Secondat Montesquieu
“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales.” – Einstein
"You're never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child." – Dr. Seuss
When do you read to your child?
Don’t forget to follow me on Pinterest where you can read more great quotes that I’ve pinned and other cool stuff.
