Family Reading list

I love a good book and excited to share my families recent reads. I used to be a voracious reader and then parenting exhaustion hit. I remember reading “My Life” by Golda Meir when my oldest was an infant and without fail, I would fall asleep after 5 pages.   It took me months to finish that book.

 The actual act of reading brings me such joy.  We have created a family routine to read together on the weekends. Every weeknight that I am home I jump into one of their beds and curl up and read beside them.  They read their book and I read mine.

 Did you know that a child who reads 20 minutes per day is exposed to 1.8 million words per year and scores in the 90% on standardized tests?*  We look forward to sharing our weekly reads with you.

XO,  JF
