I know some parents start reading to their babies at 5 months (and some do it in utero too) but I think those stages are a little too early for the young ones (ever noticed the attention span of a 5 month old?), instead I would chat with them a lot and made small talk about the weather now and then. But today, I thought that it was finally time.
Besides, they have a lovely table and chair set which they usually use to hone their climbing skills. So I had to do something to stop it from becoming less of a reading place and more of a jungle gym. With books I was hoping to make them aware of it's other uses.
It started out great!
The kids were having so much fun
This one book had pull outs to help learn colors
And there was one with a torch that would really light up
and one came with CD to sing along to
Nael was really into the color book
But the afternoon ended with...books on the floor
...kids on the table again...
...and bite marks.
Tomorrow we try again :)
