What was your favourite book as a child?
What were the books that soothed you, that made you laugh, that were your friends?
One great idea that will help your child (and you), is to revisit them at the library, and then share them with your child.
Your child will experience your emotional response to the book, and you'll not only share a special moment, but it may help him to see what an amazing thing a book is.
Thanks to Michele for this great idea.
