Reading to your infant

I am not a huge reader. I have never enjoyed it as a child or now as a women in my upper 20’s. I would rather have someone read to me instead. Working in children’s ministry I have realized how much kids love to be read to. Reading to your baby has a lot of benefits. It is a form of bonding, when you share a book with your baby, she’ll enjoy hearing the comforting cadence of your voice, feeling your heartbeat, and smelling your familiar scent. Over time, she’ll come to associate books with close, intimate time with Mommy or Daddy. It also introduced emotions. Your baby is exposed to feelings through the different sounds you use when reading, whether it’s doing a voice for a specific character or describing what’s going on in the book.  There are many other benefits that I would to reading to your child at the websites below.
