  • Every night, and throughout the day. DS would definitely protest if we tried to skip the reading.

  • No my daughter reads to me now. She's 13 and likes to read aloud.

  • NO. Night time is music time. But we do read during the day.

  • Yes. At least every night, but we read during the day too. It is very rare that we go a day with no reading.

  • I think this is so important so we try! I would say 6 days a week I do. There is always a night we get busy or lose track of time.

  • We read everyday whether it be right before bed or some other time. He LOVES reading!!

  • We read every single night before she falls asleep. Anywhere from 4-10 (short) books. My dd is 2 and reading is her passion. I think her new books were her favorite Christmas gift, we go to Barnes & Noble once every few months, because she starts memorizing all of her books too quickly!

  • Every night and before every nap and really anytime there is a book around. My 22 month old LOVES books. It is such a treat to hold him in my lap and read his favorites over and over again.

  • I did with mine when they were little we went through the entire colored fairy books collection and dozens of little Golden books

  • When mine were younger, we read together almost every night. Now that they can read on their own, they usually read themselves to sleep at night, but sometimes we read together as well (if there's a book that both girls are interested in).
