Some of my fondest memories as a child were reading with my Grandma. She even use to make recorded tapes of her reading to me and I would play them over and over. She had a way about being able to read with such enthusiasm and excitement that she really brought every story to life.
I try and bring that enthusiasm to my own kid. I love to read with them more than anything in the world. My son’s teachers have always been so amazed at his ability to read stories with so much animation and excitement. (I tried to teach him well!) And hopefully my daughter will share the same excitement.
We love visiting our local library for story time and to check out new books every week. This is how I keep that love for reading going. My daughter loves story time with the other little ones, and at the end they blow bubbles. Babies and tots love bubbles! Then we get a book for my toddler daughter and one for my son too. My son loves to look for new books from his favorite authors.
I also like to bring that excitement for reading to other kids. Whenever there’s a reading program at his school or the local library, I love to go read to the kids, or just have them read to me while I help them along. I’ve read with many kids and find that they absolutely thrive on this special reading time. Even kids that say they don’t like to read come alive when they realize it’s a no pressure zone.
There’s something so fulfilling about sharing a book with a young mind, and then being able to talk about that story. I think this is especially true in our modern world that is filled with so much media. I feel that reading, especially reading just for fun is becoming a lost art, but it’s so very invaluable to help develop young minds and imagination.
