Ahh… reading. It is one of the great joys in life. Seriously, whether for pleasure or education or both, reading is a fantastic skill that allows you to do so many things. My kids love reading. I have a 10 year old daughter and and an 8 year old son and they can both be found reading in their spare time. People ask me all the time what I did to make my kids love reading and I tell them, that I read to them and I have them read to me. Before my kids could talk, I read them board books pointing at the pictures and saying the words or longer books with fun rhymes. When they were old enough, we took turns each reading a page. They understood that reading is something fun we do together. The best way to start a child out with a love of books is to have books available to them. That is why I am so excited to bring you this amazing young reader books giveaway that is sponsored by Kingfisher Children’s Books.

She enjoyed the fun rhyming-
“The tapir is a mammal. It’s hoofed and rather stout. It sniffs for tasty plant life with its clever, stretchy snout.”
I love that it uses words that will expand your child’s vocabulary.
