  • I started reading to my daughter as soon as she was born. When she was a baby and didn't understand I just read my books to her because she liked hearing my voice. Now that she is 2 I read Dr. Suess a lot because she loves those books.

  • Well my daughter is only 5 months old but I read her everything. Ann Rice, Elizabeth Berg, Dr. Seuss, Beatrix Potter, The news paper,Nursery Rhymes, Cook books,Children's bible. I think reading to them since the time they are in the womb is so important. So DH and I try to read to her as much as we can each day.
