Reading to kids is proven to be one of the best ways to help them develop a love of books and reading. By making reading fun and bringing books to life, I believe we can raise a generation of kids who love to read!
My name is Vicki and I am a stay at home mother of a beautiful young daughter. I have my Masters Degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education and I love children’s literature! I am also an avid bookworm and a crafter. I started this blog to share my love of books, my love of learning and teaching and my belief that learning opportunities are everywhere!
You don’t have to be the “perfect” parent to give your children all kinds of learning opportunities!
From talking to them in the grocery store to making a craft together based on a favorite book, there are millions of ways to teach your kids while building precious memories. My goal for creating this site is to give parents a range of fun and easy to replicate activities that will help their kids to learn and develop a love of reading.
I hope that other moms/parents/caretakers/teachers will find the ideas on this site to be helpful and an inspiration for their own teaching ideas. I also hope parents will find a place to de-stress and find some tips to help them in their day to day lives. Come in and join me!
“When we read with a child, we are doing so much more than teaching him to read or instilling in her a love of language. We are doing something that I believe is just as powerful, and it is something that we are losing as a culture: by reading with a child, we are teaching that child to be human.” – Anna Dewdney
