Did someone read you stories when you were young? Was it a parent? A grandparent? Someone else? Do you have warm memories of sitting in a lap, on a couch, or bundled under the covers of your bed?
It’s a well-researched fact that reading to children promotes learning in general and instills a love of reading as a lifetime habit. Who doesn’t love a good story?!
Share who read to you and where they read, maybe even your favorite story. I’ll go first.
My Grandma Lewis was the reader in my life. My brother and I often stayed the night with our grandparents and we begged for bedtime stories. We’d snuggle under the covers and Grandma would pull a chair over beside the bed. My favorite story was The Little Red Hen. I remember Grandma had the Little Golden Book version. To this day I can still hear her voice, and it always brings a smile.
