    Fantastic idea! We get new books from the library each week when we go to story time, but some days we don't read any and other days we'll read half in one go. Hopefully this will be the motivation for me to get a little reading routine going

    Best thing we ever did was buy a story a day box, has been part of dd nighttime since just before hit first birthday. But will try to sit down and read at least one other book to her a day I think.

    terrific idea katiesmum. I wont join in, no one to read to in this house!. but I did read to my children every night, we joined the local library. and each child could take 10 books each fortnight, so we never had to repeat, but of course there was some favourites. my children were always able to read well and it is something they have never stopped doing. reading is one of the greatest things you can do for a child, and now I love reading to my grandchildren. I hope everyone gets on board this challenge. xx marie.

    I love that this challenge gives me an excuse to go to the library . Ds has been lucky today as a friends little girl read about 4-5 books to him today. I'll read him one after his nap.

    What a great idea KatiesMum. I don't have any kids to read to yet, but I love anything to do with people reading to children and, then, getting them interested in books.

    I always see some great articles and ideas on books to read to kids on the Read Aloud facebook page.
    We're already planning to get the StoryBook app once we are blessed with a baby too - it's one where DH can record himself reading a book on the IPad and I'll be able to use it to "read" to our baby while he's on his FIFO shift, to keep his voice in the house <blush>

    Why don't you challenge yourself to read 10 or 20 minutes a day for yourself?
    That could also be a good challenge for anyone else who already reads to their kids every day- reading for pleasure is excellent role modeling, and good for the soul

    DD is doing a project about space at school at the moment, so we read a book I had bought her about "facts about space"
