Read Across America - Part III
In this third and final blog in this series, we will look at books that encourage reading with parents and children. It is accepted that by reading to your child from birth, you not only encourage them to become readers themselves, but they learn to associate that special family reading time with love and security. Here is a list of a few of the books that we read as a family when my children were very young.
Love You Forever by Robert Munsch
The Very Hungry Caterpillar and other books by Eric Carle
Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown
Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? and other books by Bill Martin, Jr.
