hello i am a stay at home mom, i am new to the mommy world so im looking for a little help. i have a very hyper son Allen, hes prone to bursts of energy where all he wants to do is run around and or scream. we don't give him much sugary foods, he gets no candy or cookies or anything all his sugar comes from is natural sugars in fruits and such. But i find it hard to just sit down and read books to him. he cant talk or read or anything yet, so i want to read stories to him. But it seems like the only time i can get his to sit with me is if its bed time, and were cuddled up in the rocking chair. i have books and flashcards to try to coaks him into it, but i just cant get him to sit and stay sitting when i want to read with his through out the day.Answer Question
Bring him to the library and have them recommend books and let him choose some books. If the books you're choosing aren't appropriate for his age he won't sit for them. When my son won't sit for a book I let him leave and keep reading. He usually comes back to see what's happening.

I agree with the previous poster. My almost 3 year rarely likes to sit and read book, unless we are at the library. I just read out loud and she eventually comes and sits down with me. I always thought I wasn't getting through to her, but she can pretty much recite green eggs and ham and few other books so I guess she is listening.
