As the dog days of summer approach, there is nothing quite as relaxing as lounging in a hammock or beach chair reading a good book! Parents of young children, however, often wait do to their own reading at night after the kids are tucked in or they have difficulty finding any time to read. Make your own reading part of the day and you will be modeling a valuable lifelong habit for your children. Show them that reading is not just work or school-related, but is a pleasurable part of every day for everybody in the home.
Next time you visit the library with your children, take them upstairs to browse the adult collection and check out your own wonderful, engaging books. If you are looking for some reading suggestions, take a look at RFPL Reads http://rfplreads.wordpress.com/
