Welcome to my blog, thank you for stopping by. If this is your first time to my blog, it's nice to meet you. If you've been here before, welcome back.

My writing journey has begun. The road will have some bumps and detours. I only hope that the first hill is not too high, and the journey is long.

Cultivate Reading At A Young Age

You can cultivate reading in a child at an early age.  At his young age of 22 months, my grandson eagerly runs to gather a book for story time.  He will scoot up into your lap with his book of choice and follows along by pointing to the illustrations in the book.  He even makes the sounds of the animals and cars.  When being read "Goldilocks and the Three Bears", he points his finger at Goldilocks in a scolding manner.  He even groans when he sees the little bear crying.

I hope his love for stories grows and turns into a love of reading for years to come.

When we fostered a couple of boys they loved the books we introduced to them. Board books, rag books, board books and then the picture flats. One would grab a book and back onto our laps for a read! :O)

Very nice Madeleine. You sound like you have a very giving heart to foster the boys. I would guess that they were very lucky.
