I have been in love with reading for as long as I can remember. Books are a great way to open our minds and expand our imagination. Whether you are expanding your knowledge base or reading for leisure, books stimulate our minds and help relieve stress along with expanding vocabulary. I read a range a genres and I will pick a good book over a movie most days. My daughter is in grade 1 and in the last year I have seen a drastic change in her reading skills as well as her comprehension of what she reads. Reading opens up a dialect for us to discuss each story at the end the book. We love it. We read daily together. I started reading to her when she was a newborn baby. Books have always been part of our daily routine and we continue to be.
