My daughter, Sophia, and I are reading Planting a Rainbow by Lois Ehlert. My baby love colors, so I read to her about all the beautiful colors!
Emilio is 5 months old and already loves books. He is reading Cows Can't Jump with his grandmother, Emilia Rodriguez.
My son’s name is Jaquan Davis, Jr. He loves all things dinosaurs, and animals in general. He loves reading in the morning and before bed...we try to keep him excited about reading by making it a very exciting time...almost as exciting as when a child learns to go potty, we try to keep that same enthusiasm!
We usually read as part of the bedtime routine. She loves this book called, My Own Psalm 91 Book. Lately, Are You My Mother? by Dr. Seuss and Curious George Pat-A-Cake always work when she seems to not be in the mood for a story.
