LeapFrog Reading Campaign and Giveaway!! **CLOSED**


Congratulations to the winner,

We love Dr. Seuss-but our two favorites are Hop on Pop and Green Eggs and Ham. They are such fun books!

 
It amazes me how long of an attention span my children have when it comes to reading books together. They easily get distracted doing other activities, but will sit down and read a stack of books together, no problem. Even Ruby who isn’t even 18 months old loves to read with me. She is pretty pushy about it too as she comes up to me and throws a board book in my lap. And when we finish she hands it to me again, and again.
 
Studies show that the more children read, the better readers they become. One study even showed that children who read 20 minutes or more per day scored in or above the 90th percentile; those who read less than 10 minutes scored in the 75th percentile.*
 
My boys’ teachers know the importance of daily reading and have added it as a homework requirement, but even if it wasn’t a requirement for school, they would do it on their own. Both are at such a great age for discovering new series and chapter books. The kind that they read non stop, cover to cover,
 
My girls love picture books and stories and especially enjoy them before bed time. We read nightly from a children’s bible storybook and when I quiz them about what we read the night before I am always amazed at how much they remembered.
 
 
But it’s not simply about reading more. Children who are actively engaged as they read—thinking about what they are reading versus looking passively at the words on the page—have been shown to regularly outperform children who are less engaged in what they are reading.
 
And it isn’t about just reading to children, it is engaging them in the story. Asking them questions about what they read, making sure they comprehend the story and keeping then engaged.

    My little one absolutely loves Dr. Seuss and Curious George books. Right now his favorite seems to be How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Fine by me. I love it, too!

    My daughter has many favorites, but the one she goes back to the most is an old book of mine from when I was young called The Giant Jam Sandwich.

    We love reading curious george. over and over and over again :) My daughter got a hardcover book of lots of stories and even my husband makes it a priority when he gets home from work to sit and read with her!

    We love Sandra Boynton books (personally, I especially like Happy Hippo, Angry Duck). We also have some great Bible story books that were mine when I was little that my daughter loves to pick stories from.

    We absolutely crack up over anything by Mo Willems. He’s the creator of the Pigeon books (Don’t let the pigeon drive the bus… And many others). We recently discovered his Elephant & Piggie books and they leave my kids rolling on the floor. Incidentally, we adore Tag Readers too. Some of the best toys we’ve ever purchased for our kids.
