A great tradition to begin in your home is the reading of bedtime stories to your children. Reading just one bedtime story is of huge benefit to your children. Research shows that children who are read to are far more likely to become avid readers themselves. Reading is one of the best ways for your child to grow in vocabulary and get better grades in school.
Don’t forget that bedtime stories should include religious stories as well. Purchase a book of the saints to read to your children. For great books on the saints visit Loyolapress.com. Click on “Store” and then “Books” and then “Children”. This site has lots of children’s books on the faith that are excellent. “Arch Books” are also great to read to children. These are stories from the Bible that are well illustrated and meant for children. They are available for purchase on line. Simply Google “Arch Books.”
