“If you want your children to be intelligent,
read them fairytales.”
Ever since I’ve been a little girl, I’ve had a secret obsession with story books. There’s just something about a good book – the pictures, the words, the STORY. I love how easy it is to be swept away in a good tale, simply escaping to another time and place – whether existent or not.
“Books don’t just go with you – they take you to
where you’ve never been.”
While I hate to admit it, with three little kids – the extra time I have to get lost in a good novel has gotten less and less. Even though I no longer have the time to read books all day, every day – I still want my kiddos to share my passion for reading. I pick up new books and read with them any chance I get. I find no shame in spoiling my kiddos with a good book.
Not only does reading with them inspire so much thought and imagination, but it is also such a special time of bonding. I love holding them on my lap – rubbing their soft little arms and legs, smelling their sweet hair. These special moments with them will one day fade into a memory. So for now, I will hold them snuggly in my lap any chance I have.
“The world belongs to those who read.”
I recently discovered Bookroo, and let me tell you – I’m so happy I did! Bookroo is a subscription book service. We are able to get quality, age appropriate books delivered right to our doorstep. Bonus – the books come beautifully wrapped and the kids love opening these special “gifts” each month. While a new toy will get “old” in a day or two, a story can be loved and re-read hundreds of times and still be just as captivating as the first time it was opened.
The kiddos already adore the books they opened up this month, and I can’t wait to see which ones they get next month. If you’d like to try Bookroo – use code THREELITTLELIGHTS for 15% off your order!
