Encouraging Children who Love to ReadThursday, November 26, 2015
Last night, Yohan suddenly approached me and handed me his Ate Thea's storybook. "Mama, read mo 'ko stories", he said. Since the book is a compilation of classic fairytales, we chosed Aladdin.
Honestly, I'm not able to read to them regularly, as most moms I know do for their little children. Hindi siguro ako nasanay. I know the importance of reading and its many benefits. I should include "read-to-me"session with Yohan and Thea more often. Well, Thea can already read on her own but it's never too late to enjoy reading together as a family bonding activity.
This made me think to buy more books than toys and engage my kids in reading than being glued on gadgets.
