I have a little bookbean. She is so into reading lately. She will sit and look through books for a good 10-15 minutes at a time, multiple times a day. She loves being read to as well, if you read the pages she turns to! She doesn't necessarily want the book read from front to back, or beginning to end. She most certainly has her favorites as well. Right now she loves Chicka Chicka ABC, Little People Farm, Dear Zoo and Zieh mich raus, hier kommt die...!
I put her giant dog pillow out on the living room floor and pull her book bin up next to it and she will just lay there and look through books for a while. She even likes to lounge on the couch and read next to me. The only problem I'm finding is that if I actually want to read a book of my own, she stops reading her book to see what I'm doing. On Sunday, I sat and read out loud to her three pages from my book. She kept looking for pictures, but turned back to her books when she didn't find any.
Have you ever read adult books out loud to your kids?
My husband and I both love love love reading. I couldn't be happier that Alexa seems to be following in our footsteps with a love of books.
