I absolutely love reading to Lexi. I have been reading to her when she was still in the womb. Some people think that they do not comprehend what you are reading at such a young age, but they sense your tone, mood, and get to hear their mommy and daddy’s voice. There are many benefits to reading to your little one and I would love to share those with you.
- Bonding Time: It’s an activity that turns into a special time with your little. The baby is exposed to the sound of your voice and of course that is soothing for them.
- Emotions Come into Play: Your baby is exposed to feelings through the different sounds you use when reading. Every parent does a voice for a specific character at times and they detect that. Also, when you describe the book to them they hear the emotion you are using to describe it to them.
- Showing Them Reading is Fun: Making it a part of your daily routine can teach them that reading can be something that they enjoy. That will help them not dread it when they start school.
Here are a few books we LOVE to read to Lexi:
