Reading to kids from birth to age five has bundles of benefits: It helps them develop language skills, encourages empathy and emotional development, fires up their imagination, helps them focus, and better prepares them for school, especially reading and writing. But most important, story time is quality time between your child and you.
Born to Read is a keepsake memory book of your story time together and a guide to raising a reader, all rolled into one. By reading just one book a day for the first five years of your child’s life, they can log almost two thousand books before kindergarten. Use the beautiful journal pages within to keep a list of the books you and your child read together from birth to age five. It’s a perfect way to recall particular favorites, record memories, and chronicle your child’s reading journey—and your child will look back proudly at all the books they’ve logged as they start school.
