I have written a lot on the blog about reading aloud to children and how it’s an treasured tradition in our family. But I have never written a post specifically geared towards reading to babies. So today I am sharing some things I do with Louise!
It is Poetry Week in DoSayGive’s Classic Children’s Summer Book Club. I included many nursery rhyme treasuries in this week’s selection because I think nursery rhymes can be a stepping stone to enjoy poetry later in childhood. Today on the blog I am thrilled to welcome reading specialist, Leighanne Scheuermann, of Written and Bound to give us a few tips on how to get our children to enjoy and engage with poetry and nursery rhymes. She’s also taking over my Instastories later on to show us how she read these to her children!
Next week I am unveiling the details of DoSayGive’s Classic Summer Reading series because I receive SO many questions about our favorite children’s classic books. This is going to be such a unique opportunity for your family to discover and fall in love with classic books in a fun (and stress-free!) way. Before I launch the series, though, I wanted to share five invaluable – and dare I say. life changing – tips for reading aloud to children.
