Weekends are a great for carving out time to read with your children. What better way to instill the love of reading in them, than to make a fun weekend ritual that includes together time with a book?
Reading is good for so many things, including increased vocabulary, encouraging together time, and fostering a lifelong love for a good book that will benefit your kiddos time and time again. I was that kid in school who loved to go to the library and drag home a stack of books as tall as I was at the time. Never mind the struggle to get them home, it was worth it and then some. Let me tell you, I would sit down and pile through those books too, one by one, cover to cover, until the reading was done. Then I would head to the library and start all over again!
I am a huge proponent of reading, and if it's tangible books they're reading, well to me, that's even better. :)
Today I'll be reviewing four books:
For the pre-school crowd, I'll be reviewing I See Me! This is a company that incorporates your child's name into the story amidst bright, colorful pictures and a fun story.
For the elementary-aged children, there's the new Central Park Tales. This is recommended for ages 5+ but it's also a chapter book, so it's great for young readers to delve into too. My son is 8 and this was perfect for him.
The third and fourth books are the new release LEGO books. These definitely have an appeal for teens, and the architect book could absolutely be a coffee table book for the adults too. All four books were a pleasure to read.
