Books are sacred in our house. Noodlebug doesn't have much choice when it comes to being a booklover. At almost three, he has a book collection to rival any adult's. I am always looking for ways to engage him in reading and I was excited to see that Annie over at Bird and Little Bird has created the first issue of an e-zine called ALPHABET GLUE that includes "activities and inspiration for kids who love books."
I also picked up a copy of PEAK WITH BOOKS which is part of the Moving Beyond the Page homeschooling curriculum. It is a literature-based interdisciplinary program for preschoolers. Although some of the activities are too advanced for Noodlebug right now, we are starting to read the books from the program so that he will be familiar with them. I am also trying to institute a monthly visit to the library to pick out books. We won't be homeschooling but I love looking for ways to do enrichment at home. These will be great activities in that in-between time between coming home and eating dinner. (when we aren't outside, of course!)
How do you get the children in your life engaged with books?
I owe you some reviews and I promise they are coming. I got derailed by Spring Break but I DID get some reading done. Hope you are all well!
