When I walk into my child’s room because I find it odd that quiet is abounding, I was even more surprised to see what it was so quiet in the house! My boys, were in a room, in hang-out mode READING. Nothing makes me feel better than knowing that I have given and instilled in my children the gift of reading as it helps their speech, their presentations and their vocabulary. The perfect escape from our world is inside the pages of a book and the books you choose will define your child’s expanding vocabulary as well as knowledge. We also always read holiday themed books to our kids during the holidays, because reading a book together as a family is simple yet such a very special Christmas tradition. As the kids have gotten older, the tradition has not been steadfast, you know everyone can read on their own, it is not as fun! Lavishly live the holidays out loud and indulge in holidays and the gift of reading.
While the kids are hardly small enough to place in our laps and read holiday stories, we still keep several heartwarming stories placed on a table to keep the reading tradition alive. Now they read them to themselves! Keep your kids connected to the season, grab that cocoa, and bowl of cookies, let them dive into a Holiday adventure.
I tend to buy books that my kids are interested in, such as topics they love from the army, navy, marines, black ops, to hockey, baseball, and robots. Holidays and the gift of reading go hand in hand because you have the ability to gift a book to a child that will open their world, and their imagination while supporting their education.
This is a really great selection of books I have been letting my children read as each offers something that the kids are really interested in and even more. I have heard a few new words placed into their vocabularies and I know that the books are the difference maker. My one son is really into the OPS, and this Bloodlines Series, so I make sure to have plenty available and it is working, he picks up a book before he picks up a smartphone! His obsession has turned into a great reading option and his vocabulary expands every-time.
My other son likes a good read, that let’s him take his mind off of everything, and while he is hockey obsessed, I can tell you that he is not reading all hockey all the time, in fact check out his most recent picks.
What is even more interesting is that the boys trade books and read and discuss. I would never have seen that happening, or guessed that would have happened, but reading creates conversation and conversation conjures curiosity and curiosity creates a thriving pang to read more! I help them satisfy the quench for more with a purchase of more books! Remember to gift a book to a child for the holiday and open their world of adventure! Holidays and The Gift Of Reading go hand-n-hand, so what book will you gift? ~
