    My older boy loves to read and my younger son has started to be more and more interested in books. It’s so great to see them curled up with their favorite stories.

  2. Catalina says:

    My boys are grown now but when they were younger they preferred for me to read to them than read for themselves. Thank goodness that didn’t last long. Ha!

  3. What a special video. This is such a wonderful message to share!

    Love what you have to share. Introducing reading at an early age is crucial. I’m currently working on my Masters in Special Education also and can’t stress enough how important instilling a love of reading is in a child.

  5. Absolutely! Love reading and one other thing that can help kids read – letting them see you enjoy reading, yourself.
