Reading to your two, three, five year old, and even to your nine year old creates a sweet memory for both you and your child. You form a strong bond with your children. You also have something to talk about, when they grow older and they go through a difficult face in their existence. You can resort to those times when you read together, remember those precious moments when you took time to read, even though you have so many other things to do. When you read recipes and made bread, friendship bread you could take to school to share.Even the cat would want to join when you sat down to read. What a wonderful time you had when you could not go anywhere because you got snowed in, however you could make some hot chocolate and bake some bread, had your children choose the book of their preference and just be there while,they read to you or you took turns reading the story, with no one to interrupt you to go anywhere,because you were stranded anyway! How fun! Your children will never forget that!
Reading if you have not try it, do. It can be the missing link that joins you and your child forever.
