I do, found sommany games to help develop reading from an early age
I read to my kids all the time and I've built them a nice library.they love books they are 4yr&3yr
I do! I read with my 6 year old usually twice a day and have her practice her reading too!
I definitely care about this! Always reading to my babies, my toddler loves books now.
We read throughout the day and 2-3 books before bed time. My son loves to read. And he sees us reading too.
Yea I want him to be weird and sniff books with me and get exited for tiny book stores lol
We were gifted this book! I read to my baby every day! My husband is an avid reader and I loved to read as a kid and into my young adult life.
We have a lot of books and even read at the dinner table! My son loves choosing the next one to read 😜
Thank you for sharing!!
The enchanted hour great book on reading …. Also 100 lessons to teach you child to read…. The read out loud family 👍🏼
Thanks for this recommendation. I definitely want to raise a reader.
I care! We read 3 stories at bed time every single night 💗💗
My daughter LOVES to read! She has quiet time before bed where she just looks at her books.
Yes! I want my baby to love books too and we read them together
My husband and I are avid readers. We can't imagine our son not enjoying books as he's already showing a good interest in books

Have 2 avid readers ..have tons of books around ..have them in their rooms ... lead by example ..read as well
Yes I am very very keen on raising a reader. My son has been reading since 3 and now at 4 and about to start reception (I believe its pre-k) he can read read. Like heres a book read it. Will be aiming to repeat with my newborn once hes 2
Yes, funny enough I now work at a library. My son doesn't read as much as he used to, but still a good amount.
May I ask where you purchased this at?
How old is your reader?
Yes I read all the time with my little one she loves books so much
It wasn’t until around 5th grade that I really became a true reader, thanks to my grandmother. I plan to use the same technique my grandmother used when my son is around that age to get him to hopefully become an avid reader as well. Until then, I read to him here and there and he’s somewhat into it but would much rather play with his trucks. He’s almost 4
Definitely working to raise a reader. My momma did it for us, and I want to carry it on to mine. ;) You are not alone!! Just recently started my kid on the Magic Treehouse series. Already helping him to learn to read himself. Wish me luck. He turned 4 TODAY! :)
sitting in your reading chair, wanting to read a book but your eyes are so blurry, you’ll be glad your child that is visiting loves to read books and don’t mind reading a book or two to you 🥰
Our kids love books! And we love to library hop! They are little kiddos and can barely read on their own, but they love looking through books and “reading,” books that we have read over and over to them.
We don’t just have favorite books, we have favorite authors 🤓
They like to bargain how many books we need to read to them at night. They also enjoy when we read chapter books to them, and can’t wait to read the next chapter the next night.
We finished the program “1000 books before Kindergarten,” with my older one a few months before turning 3, and my other was is about to be finished with it too, he is 2.5yrs old. It’s really neat when they bring up certain things from a book we’ve read and compare it to a situation in real life, like when we talk about needing to be patient and they bring up the book, “Waiting Is Not Easy,” an Elephant and Piggie book. Literacy is such a wonderful gift to give and share with kids and really important to establish as early as possible 😁
When you’re an elderly
We read every single day! She loves books! We find the coolest books at thrift stores. Some from the 60s&70s 🌈🥰
My son loves to read..
We love reading. My little ones favourite is frozen and Goldilocks
I've got a super heavy reader (15yr) we read all the time. Magazines, newspaper, whatever. I made it a point to have reading time (just like nap time.) And make it the most fun possible. I always made sure my son saw me reading.
I'm an English teacher, so, erm, HELL yeah, it mattered that Ele read and became a reader!! Even when she did no more than chew on the books while we read to her, we still did it.
I hope my youngest son becomes a reader! His big brother LOVES books. He has a pretty great collection for an almost 3 year old.
I mean what does raising a reader even mean? Cause I can read Facebook comments all day 😂 but I used to read a lot of novels in middle and high school but stopped when I started working. And I try to read but get so distracted with life. But I can totally read a books to my baby everyday. I babysit and read to them all the time. What are some highlights or main points in this book?
Yes! We've been reading together more and more and I love. Such a huge part of my childhood, I want it to be part of his too!
We read about 20 books per day....hoping be will be a good reader!
Yes I love to read and wel love for my baby to read
I almost forgot about this..Free books from birth to 5.
Same here. Not in my area 😟
Ahhh yes! I forgot about this, thinking why I didn’t register already, just remembered that they aren’t available in my area! Hopefully soon! 😟
100% I try to read to her as often as possible. I love the 5 minute stories!
I read to her in utero, and she’s 5 weeks now! I am still reading to her! Hopefully down the road it shows itself as a positive!
I read to my baby in utero too! And I’d play classical music and nursery rhymes for him too, both in English and French (my husband is French). I hope it helped!
Yes! It’s very important to me ! I’ve been reading to my baby since day 1. Have you heard about the 1000 books before kindergarten program offered through libraries ? I just started it with my 8 week old and it’s a lot of fun for me (and I hope him one day).
Can you explain more about this program?!
Yes ! I came across the program on my library’s website: https://www.sclibrary.org/kids-teens/kids/1000-books-before-kindergarten
The goal is to read 1000 books before your baby starts kindergarten - they have recommended books based on age, but it’s mostly just a free for all. You get a folder at the circulation/reference desk in the children’s section of the library and it’s sheets of paper with the numbers 1 - 1000 (100 per sheet). Every time you complete 100 books, your baby gets a sticker and then at the end, a book bag. There is an app, but it didn’t work for me - I couldn’t even download it successfully and I found out it hadn’t been updated in years so I’m tracking the books on the sheets I get. I don’t think every library participates, but you can search on the website to confirm. We started the program on the 1st of January and we are already at 132 books. 😀 It’s a lot of fun and my baby loves it !
I started reading to my son while I was still pregnant. We read multiple books before bed most nights. He loves it and gets really upset if for some reason we can’t have a story. I’m having some anxiety because, at 4, he seems to have zero interest in starting to learn to read himself. He goes to preschool and knows his letter sounds and he can read and write many cvc words, but it is a struggle to even get him to show me what he’s learning.
We LOVE books!
My mom was a bookworm, and I followed in her footsteps to be a bookworm, and now my little man LOVES books. It makes my mama heart happy. We have “reading hours” (they aren’t actually an hour) where we’ll both sit with a book. I like to read personal growth books, and he’ll read something off his bookshelf. And then we also read his books in bed, and check out library books. We’re book crazy!
I care, I just find it hard to not to read to her on the tight schedule through the week. I do talk to her, and sing to get. We buy books are try to read them as often as possible.
My son is obsessed with the little blue truck books! Will go grab it and sit and flip through the pages and just read it too me. 13 months and loves his books
He has three off them now! The Christmas one is his favorite!! We read it three times a night
My son too! That’s his favorite! And we surprised him with the Christmas one in December and he still demands we read it every night 😂
I use and app to track my baby and my toddler read since July ; I read to her more than 1000 books , and my baby boy have 700 .
I thinks it’s one of the most imp. Thing I could teach them . Reading open door and I know the could be anything with that tool, and open their creativities
I want my daughter to be a reader and have a great imagination, and I truly believe they are connected! 😍I had a horrible time reading when I was younger, but I absolutely love to read now. I hope she has it from the beginning! What's too young to start Harry Potter? 😬😁
Whatever you like the most it’s perfect for a little tiny ones . When they get older you won’t choose again.
The point with baby’s it’s listening our voice
It’s never too young for Harry Potter.
I’m super obsessed with picture books so my kids have picked up on my passion for sure. We visit the library a lot, and authors and publishers sometimes send us new books to review on Instagram.
My daughter picked up reading really fast and that definitely helped with her interest. My son has just recently started to be able to sound out CVC words and recognize sight words, and I can tell that his interest in books is increasing now that he’s realizing that he can learn too.
My 1 year old would rather have books to look at and pretend to read then actually paying toys so everytjme i go to the store i make it a goal to get her a book something new she can entertain herself and little mind with... i do read to her daily and have gotten books with music in them that i sung and read to her and she just loves that one on one time with me... i wish my 3 and 7 year old loved books as much as her but they dont 🤷♀️
My youngest is a little reading machine. He reads on a regular basis because he really enjoys it. He loves trips to the book store or library. Then my oldest is the opposite and it’s like pulling teeth to get him to sit down with a book and focus 🤷🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️
Was there a difference in introducing reading? I want my child to read like that and my step daughter hates reading, but she wasn’t introduced early enough in my opinion. Or maybe it all just depends on the kid? 🤷🏻♀️
My son loves books touchy feely books, normal books just being read to
