I think there is nothing more important than reading for a child, get rid of every learning aid and toy you have, but as long as you have a book, there is no reason why your child can't learn from it. Reading, pronunciation spelling.. All comes from picking up a book. I used to read to Aalliyah when she was a matter of weeks old!
Aalliyah is a massive bookworm. She always has her nose deep into the pages of a book whenever she has some spare time. She reads every night before bed, when she comes home from school (as part of her homework) and all the spare minutes in between.
She took part in a summer reading challenge at our local library and has since fallen in love with the place. We visit every weekend and she gets lost in the rows upon rows of books. She normally comes out with around 10 books.. Enough to see her through the week, but if she enjoys a particular book there is no doubt she could read it in one sitting.
One of her favourite authors is Roald Dahl , so there is no surprise what costume I made her for world book day?!
"Ooompa Loompa Doopadee Dooo.. I've Got Another Puzzle For You"
As for me? I prefer the darker side of the library ;-)
Have used ebook reading apps before but there is something magical about getting books out at the library, the crinkle of the pages and the smell of the print!
This weeks Gallery theme is Books.. Head over to Sticky Fingers and check out some other entries :-)
