Girls Write Out
Thursday, November 29, 2012
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!

Happy Reading!

P.S. Special thanks to The Clik Chick Photography for the adorable picture of my grandson! :-)

I read lots to mine when they were little and lived here. Even when my son was little, we read all the time. I don't understand what happened. Not a single one of them turned out to be readers. Somehow, I think they must have been overtaken by aliens or something. LOL

At least you know they have those memories of you reading to them, Ane! :)

I loved reading to my children and now I have the joy of reading to my granddaughters. What fun it is to pick up the actual book I read to their dad and have them sit in my lap while I read it to them. Two of our favorites are Good Night Moon and The Hungry Caterpillar.

Thew two books that stick out in my mind from my childhood was a Richard Scarry book and Egermeier's Bible stories. Every night I would sit on my dad's lap and he would read me a bible story. Good memories.

I don't remember my parents reading to me, but I do remember reading to my children. Brown Bear, Brown Bear was one of my favorites. Also Good night, Moon and Love you Forever.
