My 8 Month Old Loves to Read Books[dropcap]B[/dropcap]aby cakes loves to read. I mean LOVES to read. At 6 months she knew what I meant when I said, “Ready to read a book?” as we settle into bed for a nap or before bed. With the most adorable swiftness she crawls over to my left and curls under my arm with her head on my shoulder, looking up at me as if to say, “Ready!”
I can’t say how thrilled I am to see my little one loving the world of books! The benefits of reading is are live altering and I melt as I see her truly engulfed in the story reading, knowing she’ll forever reap the rewards of early love of books.
Books Read Often are Books Loved
We read a lot and with that came her love for her favorite books, turning pages, and pointing out different animals and objects in the book and squealing with excitement. We both enjoy our reading time immensely. And I am adamant in continuing to build a love for literature by reading together every chance we get. We don’t only read before bedtime. We read at the park. We read by the lake. We read after waking up. We read in the tub. Sometimes, we even read on the toilet.
