I was chatting with my Momee Friend, Dawn after we picked our girls up from nursery school and she reminded me that today is, World Read Aloud Day!
World Read Aloud Day is a celebration. It is about reading just for the fun of it!
Reading is one of our favorite family activities. At night before the girls go to bed my husband and I make sure we all spend the last 30 minutes of the day reading together all snug in our comfy pajamas and relaxing TOGETHER reading some of our favorite books. I highly recommend trying to implement this time into your daily routine.
Reading regularly together helps children learn to recognize and read more words and it makes reading more enjoyable.
Add a fun activity to enjoy along with your book:
My daughter loves the book Please, Mr. Panda! She really loves reading the book and choosing her favorite doughnut to enjoy after as a snack. I love the book because it teaches manners and is a simple book for kids to read along to. I encourage you today to find your child’s favorite book and find a fun activity to do that incorporates the story somehow. Even if it is as simple as getting a doughnut to eat after and maybe talk about manners as you enjoy that yummy treat!
Read a book of Inspiration:
I also love reading books that encourage the girls to reach for their highest goals and dreams! One of our new favorites to read is The Golden Girls of Rio by Nikkolas Smith. It is a wonderful book to inspire all who read it because it lists all of the amazing accomplishments of such wonderful female athletes like Michelle Carter, Katie Ledecky , Simone Biles and Simone Manuel.
