You know I love to sew, you might know I love to bake, my other favorite hobby? Reading! I love to read. I can’t think too many things that sound better than curling up with a good book on a couch with my blanket and maybe hot chocolate chip cookies…Alas, with 4 little boys that pretty much never happens. But I wish it did. This is what my nightstand typically looks like:
Piled with books. I wish I had (or took) more time to read. I do read quite a bit though. One thing that I LOVE to do with my kids is read. We are almost always in the middle of a book that I am reading out loud to them and my two oldest who can read themselves are voracious readers too. Here’s their dresser
Well, ok. I cleaned it up a little for the picture. They keep it messily piled with books. I love that they love to read. And my 5 year old? A bookshelf full of books. (Check that link to see how it looks when it’s all pretty and organized. Here’s what it looks like really):
And the baby loves books too. Yes, we are a family of readers.
So, taking the Leapfrog Reading Challenge? Piece of cake!
Will you take the reading pledge this month too? March is national reading month, so do it! Read to yourself and read to your kids. It will make you happy, it will make them happy. And smarter. I have to believe that kids who read a lot are better in school not only in reading, but definitely in writing and I think in all other subjects too. I want to raise readers and I hope you do too! Leap Frog (who is seriously my favorite company for children’s products and I mean that) has some great reading tools too.
We got this fun book called the Tag reading system and my 5 year old has barely put it down. And when he does the 7 year old and 9 year old snatch it right up! It’s so much fun! He uses a magic pen (or at least that’s what he calls it) to “read” the book. It will read it to him, sound out words, etc. And it plays games. So neat.
Leap Frog has $3 off on those sets right now…AND let’s do a giveaway! Because I know you all love giveaways! Leap Frog is giving 1 reader a Leap Frog Reading Prize Pack.
I was selected for this opportunity by Clever Girls Collective but content and opinions expressed here are my own. To take the LeapFrog Reading Month pledge, please visit their Facebook page. #LFReadingMonth #spon
