When A was younger she showed a real interest in reading. She carried a book with her at all times and would ‘read’ it. She’d flip through books babbling to herself as she read it.
I always read a book to her before bed, every night. It was part of our nightly bedtime routine, starting around 9 months.
She was almost 4 when we bought our house and finally lived all together! She was so happy that we’d both get to read to her every night! I miss those days. 😫
This became what is now an obsession (a good one!) and she reads ALL the time! She’s got plenty of books, most of them are above her grade level. She’s currently in fourth grade and reading at an 8th grade level.
Now, I’m not saying that us reading to her all the time made her love books but I know it didn’t hurt! Her dad & I both love reading and do so every chance we get so I think it’s just in her blood!
Some of her favorite books right now are
- The whole Diary of a Wimpy Kid series
- Harry Potter
- Dork Diaries
- Any Minecraft book, both instructional and fan fiction
She’s got lots more but she’s asleep and I can’t peep at her book shelf to freshen my memory. Lol. #mombrain
Do your kids love to read? If so, what’s their favorite book?
