There are several new studies out about the benefits of reading aloud to children as young as newborns. So much so that articles have shown up in The New York Times and CNN.com.
As a Nanny and Mom I've seen again and again the long term benefits of routine story times.
Hope at Nanny SheCanDo asked me to write on the topic. You can find the first post HERE. Please head on over and check it out.
Do you read aloud? Are there reason's why you find it too difficult to read aloud? What are they? Leave a comment and let me know! I might have some ideas on how you can read aloud too.
