I'm not reading a lot these days. Just don't have the concentration level for it. But I CAN read to my five-year-old grandson. This week I read to him, "Llama, Llama, Red Pajama."
Now if you have never read that children's book, I suggest you run out right this minute and get it. And no, I have no connection with the author whatsoever. Don't even know her. But that book is so doggone cute!!
Maybe it's the way my grandson reads it with me. We've read it so many times, he knows practically each page by heart. And I always get a hug and kiss at the end. Sigh. Priceless!
So when is the last time you read a book to a little one? It stimulates their imaginations and opens whole new worlds to them--just the way books do with us!
With Christmas fast approaching, I highly encourage you to grab a book and find a tiny tot to share it with.
While we're on the subject, do you have any special books from your childhood memories that someone read to you? What are they? Or maybe you have favorite children books right now that you read to your children/grandchildren. I know Colleen has a new children's book coming out next summer! Be sure to check it out!
This is a great time of year for bedtime stories!
P.S. Special thanks to The Clik Chick Photography for the adorable picture of my grandson! :-)
