We all know reading is important for kids. But Choosing what to read to them can be challenging. So instead of heading off to the library or bookstore and leaving empty-handed. After what I am sure would be, a long 20-30 minutes chasing your child around trying not to let them destroy anything while looking for books. Before throwing in the towel and carrying your child out, possibly screaming, and wondering why you even bothered. Let me give you a FREE printable list of books for your toddler!

Why Your Toddler Needs To Read
You already know that it is important. But I think it is important to remember WHY.
Kids can learn SO much from reading and being read to. It helps their language development, comprehension, and of course, reading skills.
But they learn important lessons from books too. You can help them learn how to use the potty with a book. To be prepared for their first day of school. Or even to understand difficult topics such as their feelings or when people are being mean.
Reading to them, and encouraging them to read to you, should be a part of your routine as often as possible. Daily is great, more than one story each day is absolutely wonderful.
So make sure you grab your FREE reading bucket list from the Resource Library.
