Storytime with Grandparents

My children love stories. I personally believe that reading books is a very important part of their education. I have even read studies that indicate that parents should be reading to their children when they are as young as 6 months old. I have tried to read to them since they were in utero. They have been very privileged the last month or so as they have been able to spend a little time with both sets of grandparents and who is better to have read a story to you than a grandparent.

Storytime with Papa

G’tums settles on Papa’s lap for a good story. (As you can tell he really likes his new bicycle helmet.) We all enjoy listening to stories by Papa, because he embellishes them a little and leaves at least the adults laughing with his word twists.

Storytime with Nana

The big kids cuddle with Nana in her bed for a good story. Nana is one of the best readers in the world. She loves reading stories to people. She’s even taken the time to record some chapter books on to CD for us to listen to. We all love them.

Storytime with Grandpa

Even Grandma enjoys listening to Grandpa’s reading. Grandpa took the time to read a whole book to the whole family. Grandpa is the best at making strange noises and heavy accents for the different people or animals that he’s reading about. You can’t help but take time to listen to Grandpa read a story.

    That is so cool. You can see the support your family has for your homeschooling. I agree whole heartedly that reading is very important. My son hated reading when he was little, I will never forget the first time I found him hiding between the couches reading a book ( we searched for him for about 20 minutes before we found him).
