I take care of three kids, and at nap and bed time, they all love to sit and listen to the stories and look at the pictures.
I always wonder what's running through their little minds as they drift off to sleep. Are they picturing a cat wearing an over sized hat? Or maybe they're dreaming of green eggs and ham? Perhaps they are skipping off on an adventure with Dora or swimming under the sea with mermaids?
I think that reading to children not only gets them interested in learning but encourages them to use their imaginations and think for themselves.
Do you read to your children?
