World Read Aloud Day

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.
