  • I read to them all the time , I would lie if I said we still do it everyday, but my kids read to themselves when I don't ... I love to read picture books with rhyming prose, Our Absolute favorite and has been for years is Seven Silly Eaters.

  • at bedtime every night we read at least one book, I should do it more than that though - he just has zero interest and won't sit still for a book, we have gotten his attention by just reading out loud, he'll come over every once in a while to check it out lol!

  • Yes. My DD would rather me read a book to her than to go outside any play.

  • I try to just about every night. Sometimes more often than that. My DS is almost 20 months old and we mostly just "view" the book. He enjoys turning the pages, and he doesn't leave much time to read the book.

  • Started reading to my now almost 5yr old son when he was 18months old. Yes, he might not show much interest at first or might just be turning the pages, but that would change as they get older. Find out what their favorite character/s are and start that way. As their choice in books mature, reading could be more fun. My son likes fables now which is amazing!
