One of my favorite things to do is to read to AG. I started when she was in my belly. I read All The Ways I Love You to her a few times a week. As soon as she was born, we started reading to her daily. It’s the time of day I look forward to, especially at this age. One of her favorite things to do is read. She’ll grab a book, hand it to me and climb into my lap. My heart melts every. single. time. she does it. It’s just the sweetest thing. Sometimes she’ll listen to the whole book, others she’ll climb out to play with something else. She has also learned how to turn the pages. Most times I haven’t finished reading before she’s onto the next page. But as long as she is exposed to literature, it’s all good. I hope that her love for reading continues to grow over the years. I look forward to the days of reading chapter books and the teacher in me looks forward to the days I can start reading response journals with her. I bet she’ll LOVE that!
I was fortunate enough to have a lot of books to start AG’s library. At my baby showers the guests brought books instead of cards and wrote notes to AG in them. Every time I open on of the books I see a handwritten note from someone special in our lives. It makes me smile every time. Thanks to the showers we have books all over our house (in her bedroom, in her playroom, in the car and in the living room), there are always books at her fingertips.
Here is a list of some of my favorite books to read to her. I recommend getting the board books for little ones. If not the pages are sure to be ripped after a few uses. With the board books, the pages are easy to turn, they hold up really well and are easy to wipe down.
