Reading is such an important activity to do with your children, no matter how young they might be. I fully believe that Darah already has some favorite books, and she’s not quite 2 months old! While she likes it when we read just about anything to her, I’ve noticed that she seems particularly excited when we read certain Dr. Seuss books to her. Does your child have a favorite Dr. Seuss book? Even at such a young age, mine does! Her very favorite is Green Eggs and Ham. She also enjoys Fox in Sox (a super tricky book to read, since it’s all one big tongue twister!). My theory is that the patterned rhythms found in Dr. Seuss’ books are enjoyable for her to hear at this age.
Since Dr. Seuss is one of the most popular children’s authors of all time, we have found every single one of her Seuss books (and I think she has around 10) at yard sales. I have also spotted them for decent prices at places like TJ Maxx and Marshall’s. Make sure that your child’s library has at least a few books from Dr. Seuss. We’ve found them to be something that makes our little girl smile!
