    Default July Challenge .... Reading to your children

    After last months epic cleaning challenge, I thought I would have something a little easier this month.

    So - the challenge is to read to your children every day - or for older kids to have them read to you. Sharing a love of reading is one of the most important gifts you can give.

    If you are pregnant and have no children yet - you can still join in For you, the challenge is still to read (or sing) to your unborn baby ... just for them to hear your voice in that lovely melodical tone ...

    ( and post in here about what you read / how your children like it / which books they prefer etc )

    Great idea - we read every night as part of our bedtime routine and with homework - but might take the challenge to find some new books!

    This is such a fantastic idea. I read to all 3 of mine every night, one of my favourite times of day is our bedtime storytime!

    I love this. I have an almost 10 mth old, and I was determined to read to her everyday when I was pregnant - then found that the days went by in a haze of nappies, feeds, naps, trying to find time to eat/have a shower.
    Now that DD's got more awake time in the day, and I'm feeling more 'myself' I would love to take up this challenge. There's a lot of stuff in the news at the moment about this, so this is a timely challenge. Good on you KatiesMum for starting this.

    Great idea Katiesmum! I particularly love this challenge being a teacher. My boys love to have daddy read to them every night. It's so sweet to see


    Me + DH = DS1 (6), DS2 (2) and #3 due September 8th

    Great challenge!! We read to DS1 every night, but often read the same books over and over, so would love follow along for book recommendations. I also need to make time to read to DS2 more - he isn't so interested in sitting still and reading atm, but I need to make the effort to read at least 1 book a day with him.

    Great idea! We read to ds1 before every nap, so three times or more a day. He's in grade 1 now and excelling in reading. Dd also got heaps of reading. Ds2 who is one now certainly hasn't had as much :-( this challenge will hopefully get me onto it more and into better reading habits with him
