  1. My 2 1/2 year old is a lover of books already! I think it has something to do with mama’s love of reading! We had soooo many board books that she has access to all day….I read her probably 10-20 books everyday and some days more (and that is why I can recite Little Blue Truck by heart). We also have special books reserved for bedtime reading! I love that my girl also sits and “reads” her books aloud on her own!!

      Thanks so much for your comment! Reading is such a great thing to make part of your daily routine with your little ones! An early love of books can really set them on the right path for a lifelong love of learning!

      Love that! My daughter’s book collection keeps growing and growing since everyone knows how much she loves books. I love that she tries to read whenever she sees letters on ANYTHING, she was “reading” my license plate the other day! 🙂

  2. I absolutely adore this post. It’s so important to instill an early love of books in your children. Reading is wonderful. Both for our mental development and a way to relax! I am so grateful for all of the reading time I had with my mom and definitely credit her for my love of reading today. 🙂 Thanks for sharing such wonderful tips!

      Thanks for the sweet note! I’m so glad that you grew up with a love of reading! And you’re right, it’s such a great way to relax as an adult. The few minutes I get to myself each night are spent reading before bed! 🙂

  3. My mom and my grandfather both read to me from the time I was a baby. I still love books, though I don’t get as much time to read as I’d like. I have such fond memories!

      That’s such a wonderful memory to have with your grandfather! I have a great video I took of my mom reading to my daughter, I know my girl will cherish it when she’s older! 🙂

      That’s so great to hear! I really hope my daughter’s love for books continues throughout her lifetime! 🙂

  4. This is something that has been on my mind. I have a 5, 4, and 2 years old, and I must confess I haven’t been as consistent as I would like. Thanks for this reminder to more intentional with reading to and with them.

      We all have things that we wish we could do better as mother’s, don’t we? It’s wonderful that we have the little ones to continue to inspire us to be the best we can be! 🙂
