I believe in reading out loud to your child. I think its part of the reason Miss L’s reading is advanced as it is. She’s always getting read to. Last night from 8-9:30 pm (minus getting ready for bed time), we read 2 children’s books, plus a chapter from Shawn of the Sheep (her daddy’s current read with her) and some Calvin and Hobbes. She knows she gets bedtime stories from each of us, and if we try to not do that…ooh, its on. Let the tears begin.
Go check out the link below for a bit of information and to get pointed toward a book that might convince you even more.
