Shared experience is one of the best ways of building a love of reading with your children. I made reading aloud a priority for my children from the time they were born. Read-Aloud time is often associated with bedtime which is wonderful, but the possibilities are numerous. Enjoy the out of doors by reading at the park on a bench or under a shady tree. On a rainy day, toss a sheet over a table or a pair of chairs to make a cozy reading tent. Encourage your children to read to you while you're making dinner. Look for opportunities to connect.

This Poetry Friday is being hosted by Becky's Book Reviews. Drop in and enjoy!

Friday is "Famous Firsts" here at All About the Books so give these a try. Do you know the title and author of these children's books?

1. "Mrs. Frisby, the head of a family of field mice, lived in an underground house in the vegetable garden of a farmer named Mr. Fitzgibbon."

2. "In the light of the moon a little egg lay on a leaf."

The first one comes from "Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nimh" I believe the second one comes from Eric Carle's "The Very Hungry Caterpillar".
