<span style="font-family:Times New Roman">Do you read to your children? If they\'re still babies, do you plan on reading to them when they\'re a little older?

I am an avid reader so I've been reading to Trey since he was probably 1 month old. He doesn't really pay attention but he likes to hear my voice. I've enrolled him a childrens book club so I will always have books on hand!

A children's book club sounds like a good idea! I'll have to look into that!

I love to read too, so I read to my children while they were still in the womb. I haven't stopped either.

Ally is read to everyday at daycare and sometimes at home. We plan to read to her everynight before bed when she gets a little older.

I have read to my children since they were newborns. Now my DD is 5, she has taught herself to read and now she reads to me and DS! She's even reading Little House in the Big Woods (Laura Ingalls Wilder) to herself at night. I am so proud of her--I just hope she'll let me keep reading to her too!

I don't read to Evie yet, but definitely plan on it when she is a little older. I can't get her to sit still long enough without fussing to make it through one page...

I have been reading to Nathan since he was born. He is 4 months now and I read to him every night. I usually read him a pretty short book because he loses interest pretty quickly but he seems to enjoy it. He sits on my lap and smiles at the book and tries to grab the pages.
