August is that time of year when you are enjoying the summer holidays but also mentally preparing for the back to school routine.
One thing that is important but can be overlooked is reading. Reading in the summer holidays is important and can be very beneficial. I have already written about encouraging your children to read.
Reading is great for helping with their vocabulary and if they are reading a range of different books it can help them learn new ideas, ready to discuss and implement when they return to school. However it is never too early to start reading.
Books to Door have a number of books that are suitable for 0-5’s. Board Books with bright colours and textures are perfect for the little ones to get them interested.
Reading and sharing books with your toddlers is a perfect way to get them ready for school life. It can help them with their concentration and also develop their ability to sit and focus on something. Minu has just turned 1 and I am already encouraging her to look at books daily. We have a number of suitable books for her age, board books are preferred so she doesn’t rip them. And already I can see her developing an interest in books as she heads over to where her books are kept and selects one to look at herself.
Books2Door kindly sent us our selection of Baby’s First Library. This is a set of 18 board books which are great for little ones aged 0-5. The books will help them learn about the world with information on everyday objects such as cars and animals.
The books are delightful, and a perfect starter for babies to begin their reading adventure, each individual word is fun to repeat over and over which was also designed for reading development in mind.
