Dear Diary, As a child, you couldn’t catch me without a book in my hand. My idea of fun was spending a Saturday at the library, checking out every hardcover I could carry. I would read to anyone who would listen, including my Cabbage Patch Kids lined up on my bed. I knew the mailman by name. I sat by the door waiting for him to deliver my monthly subscription of Highlights magazine. After I finished a chapter, I would write my own stories in a notebook. But as time passed and as I left my college campus years later, I would read less and less. Now that I’m a mom, I want to spark that love of learning in my daughter. She’s now at a age where she sits still and listens to stories about elephants, ballerinas and talking cats. She even grabs the book when I’m done and attempts to read it back to me. One book stood out on the shelves, and it tops my best books for babies and toddlers list. Check out this exclusive Diary of a First Time Mom video to hear why this is a must read for your family! Hey DFTM Fam–What’s your favorite book to read to your little one? Are you sharing stories that you read as a child?
