How often do you read to your LO?


I read to my older children a lot so she is caught up in the mix. She doesnt really sit still for the readings but when I read to just her I choose a very small book with bright pictures and really dramatize the words. Its about 1-2 mins of reading and then she wants to eat the book

I try to read to him but most of the time he insists on fiddling with the pages so I just give up. lol

I do bring him to baby time at the local library, where they sing songs and read books to them. There's one book they read every once in a while that has little ducks in it and the librarian makes these cute quacking sounds when she read it and Marcos just loves that - he makes little noises and claps his hands.

Every day, we go to "Tiny Tots Time" on Thursdays at the library (everyone at work thinks I'm nuts for this, as I'm a children's librarian so I go to work and do the run the baby time sessions, then on my day off I go to a different library service and sit and watch them... and steal their ideas), I swear, I don't have a life outside of the stacks.

At home though it's getting a little tedious because the only book she wants to read is Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?, any other book and she just won't listen, she will squirm and grab the book and throw it. She will only have Brown Bear.

I'm sick of Brown Bear. So much so that I currently refuse to read Brown Bear at work.
