August 8th is National Book Lovers Day. Celebrate by reading as a family!

Do you read to baby? It’s never too early to start. Reading to your baby from the time they’re born will help expand their vocabulary. Even just looking at the pictures helps their development. Men and women read differently but both are beneficial and important for children to experience. Women will ask more concrete questions while men typically ask questions for the imagination. Any reading with baby can help their communication development, even if they aren’t talking yet. Celebrate National Book Lovers Day by picking up a book and spending the day reading!
