    I did it! We just finished the winter reading program at the library, so it’ll be nice having another goal to work towards!

    Melissa says:

    My DS is getting ready to turn 2 and is just now showing a lot of interest in books and reading. We are going to start reading 30-45 minutes a day. Broken up into 15 minutes sessions because he has no attention span!! He loves going to the library to look at books and he always gets to pick one out to bring home.

    Melissa says:

    I pledged 30 minutes a day with my kiddos (3 & 4). They will love it because they love to read anyway . . . and it will help remind me not to get too distracted by the other daily stuff that needs to be done.
