Encouraging Children who Love to Read

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.
