It’s never too early to start reading to your child. Whether they’re snug in your womb, a toddling three year old or an emergent reader, books and stories are a lovely way to bond with children. In fact, just because your child can read on their own, it doesn’t mean you should stop reading to them! Many parents wonder how they can make time spent reading to their young children engaging and fun.
