Perfect!? Don’t mind me and my witty humor, I just couldn’t pass that up. I have gathered an assortment of books that will be a home run!
Reading is so beneficial to children in so many ways. From helping them learn to read to using their imagination, and even growing their vocabulary. I try to read to my son daily, he is two right now. I have seen a huge difference in the number of words he uses, and it makes me wonder if he remembers it from the books we read. One of his series of books is the Cat and the Hat. He loves watching the television show on PBS and loves the book as well. He is a huge cat lover, so cat books have him swooning.
