My kids love to read and I am so grateful. Boogie has discovered reading books and not just listening to them. I love his enthusiasm and the way he asks, "Mommy, do you prefer fiction or nonfiction? I prefer nonfiction. I like to learn about animals."
Buggy wasn't into listening to stories before bedtime. But more recently she loves snuggling up with me before nap time and listening to a story. She is now interested in audio books, which gives Mama a break when I'm trying to get a meal on the table for my kiddos.
Mr. Bananas loves listening to stories and one of his favorite books is Dear Zoo. It's a lift-the-flap book and underneath each flap is a different animal. Since some of the first signs we teach our kids when we teach them baby sign language are animal signs, this book is a big hit. Mr. Bananas loves to sign each animal. It also makes it a fun interactive reading experience.
