Today I Read A Book.
As the oldest of many kids, I've read lots of stories. I used to loooooooooooooooove going to the library and picking a huge stack of books for myself and another separate, equally large, pile of books to read to my younger siblings. I've worked in libraries and schools most of my career years. You'd think I'd be reading up a storm with my own two girls. As pitiful as it sounds, my goal is to read them at least one book a day. And sometimes I don't even make that goal. But, it's important. It really is. Studies show that kids who are read to do better with language over all. Speaking, reading, writing, you name it. Ash loves books. She loves for me to read to her. I'm sure Britt will too when she overcomes her insane desire to chew on everything she can get her paws on. Anyways, here are some of my favorite picture books. What are yours?
