My last blog post was before Thanksgiving. I can’t believe how many months have passed since then. I’m not always as disciplined in my writing endeavors as I’d like to be. While I was working on stories and other things authors do, I failed to continue weekly blog posts.
Sometimes life gets in the way! There were highs and lows, but the biggest high came on December 24th when our first grandchild, Noah David was born!
Noah was born into a family of readers. Before he was born his bookshelf was full because books were a requested baby shower gift.
BOOKS are a part of his everyday life!
READING to children from birth ( or even in the womb) has been shown to have a positive impact on so much of a child’s development. A recent study from Rutgers University has shown that reading to your child has a positive impact on their behavior. Reading to a child boosts vocabulary and reading skills . But keep in mind that print books get the nod over ebooks in this study out of the University of Michigan.
So when you finish this find a good book and read to a child!
