One of the many favorite special moments that I get to share with my son throughout the day is “storytime.” I started this tradition with him, while I was still pregnant, reading children’s books to my tummy. I knew he was listening, because he would kick up a storm each and every time that I read to him. Storytime has since been a fun family tradition that we share.
Not only does reading provide those extra special bonding moments between you and your child, but studies have shown that in starting early, you can also promote improved communication skills and brain development. Of course, no matter how old your children are, it’s never too late to start a storytime tradition with your family.
