Summer Reading and Reading and Reading

We are knee deep in summer and hopefully the pages are flying while we grownups and our kiddos continue to read, even though school is out.

Did you know the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends reading to your children all the way through age 12?  That was a surprise for me!  While, we are a family who loves to read, I haven't read to my oldest in a long time.

Shame on me?  Maybe not.  Every child is different.

We do however share a good picture book from time to time - so why not surprise SOMEBODY special in your family - no matter their age with a new picture book for a lazy summer day?

Pick up a copy of Somebody, send it to a friend, read it to a neighbor...then come back and let me know how you are enjoying your summer reads!

  1. Totally guilty of not reading much myself lately! I just bought a bunch of new books now to get off the computer and start reading again! :-)
