Last week I talked about the board books my son has been loving lately, but this week I want to share the what I read in June! These are the sort of posts that make me so glad I decided to move away from this being a food blog and to focus on motherhood instead. (Don’t get me wrong though–the recipes are still here and in my husband’s opinion, they’re still good! I think this sparkling blueberry lemonade might be just the right treat to accompany your summer reading.) Not every book I share will be directly related to motherhood, but some will be!
I’ve always known the importance of reading to kids from an early age, and since I’m a big reader myself, it wasn’t hard for me to make reading with my son a habit beginning when he was a newborn. He’s enjoyed books since he was tiny, but lately I’ve seen his interest in his board books grow even more. Often, he wants to spend 30 to 45 minutes at a time engaged with listening to the stories, looking at the pictures, and turning the pages. It has been so sweet to watch his love of books develop, and I so enjoy our precious reading time together each day.
