Nursery Rhymes

You cannot overestimate the impact reading has on your children. Even the years before school are extremely important. Many parents and caregivers have gotten away from reading fairly tales and nursery rhymes to their kids, but that isn't a good idea. Mix up the fiction and non-fiction things you read with the old traditional nursery rhymes. They teach you child so much about language, and rhyming. Here is my scrapbook page for Feb 26. "Read a Fairy Tale Day."



Another challenge for today is using this sketch to make a card. I will be giving this card for an anniversary.

This layout is so sweet! I agree with you about reading to your kids when they're young. I love reading! My parents did not buy me toys or electronics when I was growing up but books & comics instead. And I so appreciate them for this.

What a wonderful layout and card. I totally agree about the importance of reading, I buy my grandchildren so many books. Kiki has loved snuggling up to 'read' a story with me since she was very small, and Max is showing the same signs. The beauty of the written word.........

You are so correct in reading to your child before school. When my children were small I did the same. Now I am enjoying reading to my grandson!
