From the time my daughter was in the NICU we started reading to her. At first it was because it was important she hear our voices but in time it was because she just loved story time. At 19 months she loves pointing out pictures in her books and turning the pages to show us things. I can’t think of anything more important to her development than reading time.
Here is a list of the 15 books we couldn’t do without.
The Complete Tales of Winnie-the-Pooh by A. A. Milne
