As you know, we are keen readers here at Red Ted Art. It is one of the things I was really looking forward to doing with my children when I was pregnant. I get great joy of discovering new and quirky books, as well as reading classics from my childhood.
So I am VERY excited about the McCain Smiles giveaway – partnering with Ladybird Books and offering ALL sorts of classics to their customers. To me, books are part of my childhood, my culture, traditions and simply growing up. I do hope, my kids will be reading their favourite childhood stories with their kids one day!
Check out this wonderful video by McCain Smile’s Book Club Moms and let it inspire you to get reading:
I love how they talk about the differences in their children’s book reading pleasures and choices and how they approach reading more with their kids. They have some great tips to share of how to read to kids with different age groups and interests – to make 1 on 1 time more special and valuable.
In our house, we encourage reading:
* Having 100s (!) of books easily accessible to our children – in the living room, their bedrooms, the loo and our bedroom.
* By incorporate reading into our bedtime routine.
* By reading a lot ourselves – be it novels, newspapers or magazines.
Currently our children get the same stories, but already we are finding that they have different interests and soon we may read one book together and then each child will get their own.
