Last week, I went to the Evergreen State Fair with my husband, kids, and parents – the whole gang : ) In order to avoid carting around arm loads of things as we ran from ride to ride, we told the kids they could buy one item on our way out of the fair. Each time we looked at something, we’d review all the other items they had seen and discuss which was top on the list at the time. I can’t tell you how excited I was that my son’s item that kept on the top of the list all day was a book. I want nothing more than for him to grow up loving reading and being able to read well.
My mom, a teacher, tells me that many studies show when kids have positive reading experiences with parents, they are more likely to love reading and do well in school. Evidently, kids will transfer that warm feeling of being snuggled by a parent, rolling with laughter over a funny parts and having their parent’s attention when they read together to other types of reading, including reading in school. That means they feel good when they open any kind of book – even a textbook.
Seems like our reading has paid off so far! In support of your snuggling time, we are having one last free book Thursday. So, stop by with your child today and we’ll give him/her a book for your snuggling time.
