When we read:
We spend lots of time reading together whenever we babysit Sophie.
What we like to read:
Sophie loves everything about Winnie the Pooh (A. A. Milne), her friends on Sesame Street and, of course, Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown.
Why reading is important:
Reading, starting at an early age, is the most critical element of child development. I see that in Sophie every day. Her mom and dad read to her all the time. While she's not yet 2½, Sophie's verbal skills go well beyond her age.
