I can’t imagine life without books. Growing up, reading was everything to me. I would inhale books, reading 2 or 3 at a time, dozens of books a week. They were my escape. Now that I’m a mom, I’m hoping to instill the same love of reading with my Ayva.
We are no stranger to lots and lots of reading (her bedroom is covered in books!), but this summer, we are trying something a little more intentional. We are participating in the iVillage/PBSKids Summer Reading Challenge, and I couldn’t be more excited! The challenge kicked off today, and in order to reach our goal of reading 100 books this summer(!), I added reading a book to our morning routine. Between that and the Reading Party that we are hosting with her preschool on Friday, Ayva is so excited about reading!
Today, we read 3 books. One of the books, “Me Too!” by Mercer Mayer, on loan to us from my job, was so fun that Ayva asked me to read it 4 times already! Check out her video where she “reads” the book, and tells you what she thinks!
