Find a Good Read

Find a good read and boost the richness in your life — and in your kids’ lives, too.

Reading a good book can bring such a boost to your everyday — and to that of our kids. I am having a great time watching my littlest ones explore books together. They are both on the cusp of entering the world of books on their own. And my bigger ones? What joy to see that even though they love today’s technology, they still love a good read.

As moms, we should be reading, too. Something other than the back of a cereal box or the quick blog post. There’s something so “real” about curling up with a good book in a cozy chair — even if you’re journeying to another world. Here are some tips and tricks to making reading an everyday thing at your house.
