In which Brianna discusses the benefits and logistics of reading books to your child that they cannot. Includes tips for optimal execution and affiliate links to featured books.
I recently reviewed a chapter book for kids; a first for this site, where we usually stick with picture books. I did this, because Ariel and I feel it’s important to start some conversations about a different kind of story time. You probably already know that reading aloud to children helps foster a love of reading and learning, enhances their vocabulary, and is the cheapest bonding activity available to a caregiver (except snuggling). In our home, we read at least a few times a day, and always before bedtime. But what happens when your child can read on their own? Do you put away the picture books, give them a reading lamp, and close the door on bedtime stories?
Ariel and Brianna are friends who met while working in a library. Now they collaborate to develop life-enhancing book club experiences.
