Start Reading Early
Early literacy is an important building block in the development of little minds. Whether they’re swaddled and tiny or big enough to read themselves, all children benefit from story time
If you aren’t sure where to start in finding age-appropriate books, visit your local library. The librarian can show you exactly which books are the right ones for your little sprout. Since you are visiting the house of books, there is sure to be something there to tickle your child’s fancy. Children learn through exploration and play. If their hands are a little too busy and end up damaging a book, rest assured; insurance in library is par for the course in these facilities.
Insurance in library also keeps the facility covered in case of a disaster like a fire.
Author C.S. Lewis of the Chronicles of Narnia famously said that “a children’s story that can only be enjoyed by children is not a good children’s story in the slightest.” When choosing books for your youngster, pick one that isn’t just silly nonsense but actually teaches a lesson that you will love to read too. Some excellent recommendations for children who are babies through preschool include:
Chrysanthemum by Kevin Henkes
The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams Bianco
Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak
Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs by Judi Barrett
There are hundreds of books that are perfect for shaping young minds. Find some favorites and begin making memories together.
