  • Reading is a big part of the bedroom routine. We get between 30-45 mins a night, plus a lot more on weekends.

  • Every chance I get. Whenever he comes to me with a book, I stop and read it to him. He's only 2 so the books don't take that long to read. And every night I'm home I read him a book at bedtime.

  • K, I suck. maybe once a week. Our evenings are so jammed packed, it's hard to figure time in.

  • Several times/day. Always before nap and before bed, but my 2 yo will usually bring me books throughout the day that he wants me to read. But there are a lot of books that I will read to him and then let him "read" to me (from memory, but I think it's good practice because he points at the words)

  • not as much as I should. I try to get in at least a book a day (I work -- she gets read to at daycare several times a day)

  • My kids are old enough to read to themselves. They both have their nose in a book constantly.
