One of my fondest memories as a child is listening to the many childhood stories my mom read to me. I cultivated the love of reading at a very young age.
After a warm bath, application of soothing lotion, and clothed in new PJ’s; there’s nothing more comforting than a good bedtime story.
Snuggling under the covers and listening to a bed time story is one of the best memories I have from my childhood.

I try to instill the love of reading into my children today. I’m going to give you a Bear Hug! is a new book I recently introduced to my 2 children. I’m going to give you a Bear Hug! by Caroline Cooney is a rhythmic, fun, book for children. While reading this book to my 2 year old daughter, she enjoys the way the author plays with word sounds to tell a story.

As the title suggest, the book is all about hugs. The book plays on imagination and all the ways a child might give or receive a hug. My 2 year old loves to hug so she was attracted immediately to the book. The different animals through out the book helps her learn animal recognition.
My 6 year old enjoyed the book as well. He practices his reading by reading the book aloud. For his reading level, it’s a good book for him to read to his little sister. The illustrated pictures are eye catching and attractive to young readers. This book is fun, educational, and a little wacky. The quality of the book is nice and sturdy. The perfect gift for little ones. You can purchase your copy at amazon.com
Story time is a time for kids to learn, let their imaginations soar, and develop a love of books. As my love affair for books increased, I learned I could go anywhere in the world; with out leaving my house through reading. I would like to hear some ways you cultivate the love of reading in your children and what is means to you.
